Darning Newham Presents: Drawing Techniques and Textile Print Workshop

Saturday 8 May 2-3.30pm
  • Free
  • Family

This is a hands-on and experimental drawing session where participants will be guided through and encouraged to create their own hand drawn textile print sample(s)!

Participants will have the opportunity for their textile prints to become part of a community banner for Newham Heritage Month which will be featured later in the month on the Newham Heritage Month website.

The workshop is aimed at adults and children aged 12+ years.


Darning Newham is a community centred textiles project created by two local textile artists, Katie May Anderson and Memunatu Barrie. The project’s aim is to celebrate the contribution of women in the history of Newham. We believe using textiles to re-examine heritage can help translate history and shine a light on untold stories.
