The Lockdown Legacy project is a part of the Loving Earth Project, focusing on how the Covid Lockdown has affected our relationship with the environment. This Zoom event will help you develop or get started on making a textile panel as part of thisproject in any style. If you have already started on your panel (on your own or at another workshop), there will be opportunities to discuss how to develop the design, overcome specific textile challenges, think about how to finish it, and also your ideas for your action on the environment.
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 Lottie Percival and Linda Murgatroyd
Free . Advance booking essential via Sustainable Merton

The small group of people who came together to take forward the Loving Earth Project in France is continuing to meet to share experiences of where the meditation and project is leading them. They would be happy to hear from others who have participated in the meditation, whether alone or at a Loving Earth Project workshop and would like to join their group.
Some of them have set up a simple website at https://projetparamourdelaterre.wordpress.com/
They would welcome suggestions and offers of practical support in developing the project in France (and francophone countries). Please contact them directly at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested.
Lottie Percival, who made the textile videos for us is kindly offering a short series of stitch workshops by Zoom in February and March, for people who want to learn new skills to use in making their Loving Earth panels.
These are run independently and are £6 each. Advance booking essential. Details on our Events page

We’re preparing for an interesting conversation, exploring what we can do ourselves and with others – from the local community to the international organisations- to address the challenges of environmental breakdown. We are pleased to welcome Stella Weinrich to join the conversation from a local government perspective.
