  • Get started on your Lockdown Legacy panel
    19:30 -21:00
    2021.02.01


    The Covid-19 pandemic has affected people in different ways. As well as suffering, sorrow, fear, loneliness, hard work for many, it’s also been a time to reflect on how we relate to our environment and how we could do things differently in future in our local area.

    Sustainable Merton is working in partnership with Loving Earth Project to explore these questions.

    This Zoom event will get you started on making a textile panel in any style. You’ll be invited to do a little preparation from home in advance of the event if you wish and will be welcome to join our online chats for panel-makers as your panel progresses, if you like.
    Led by Sue Tyldesley and Lottie Percival

    Free . Advance booking essential
