Through the teachings of former Newham resident and self-taught visionary artist, Madge Gill (1881-1961), we would love you to explore your creative drive, and supernatural talent.

Newham based East London Textile Arts (ELTA) are working with curator Sophie Dutton to hold weekly Zoom studio sessions, which are free and open to all.

This is a series of workshops open to those with an interest in textiles or drawing and finding out more about a fascinating local artist.

Ages 8+ welcome (children must have adult supervision when using needles and scissors).

The works created will be exhibited at Little Ilford Baptist Church on Saturday 22 May.
