2021: a year of changes to save the future?

2021 kicks off with an exhibition of over 80 Loving Earth textile panels at the Robert philipps Gallery, Riverhouse Barn Arts Centre in Walton on Thames (Covid permitting), and a panel discussion exploring what we can do about the issues raised by panel-makers. Courses and workshops organised by Woodbrooke and Quaker Arts Network accompany the exhibition and offer different ways for people to join the project and explore how we might make changes without becomeing overwhelmed by the environmental crisis. While you’re stuck indoors this winter, why not take the opportunity to reflect creatively with us and commit to an action to help care for what you love? Then you could make a textile panel to inspire others!
