Redefining Craft - William Morris: Beyond Extinction
Starting on the Saturday 9th November 11am-1pm
‘Redefining Craft - William Morris: Beyond Extinction’, is a new free community project launching at The Exchange, home to our studio, in collaboration with National Trust’s Red House and Kew Gardens, led by Marta Cernovskaja, founder and designer at Lemuel MC.
The aim of the project is to work with the community to develop new textiles designs using Morris’s designs and ethos as inspiration, combined with recent research around plant extinction in the UK. Participants will learn about textile design and get to try out different textile techniques including fabric printing and embroidery. The work of participants will be used in an exhibition at The Exchange in the New Year.
If you are interested in getting involved, please book here.
Every Sunday from 11am-1pm
Join Us and The Exchange for Craft Sundays! Participants will learn how to embroider, sew and learning new techniques whilst working towards collaborative textile projects.
The current project is the creation of a series of Storytelling Cushions that will be exhibited at The Exchange later in the year, before being used by young people for education sessions.
