Want to share stories of migration through textiles and have your work showcased in an exhibition?
Traces: Stories of Migration is a six-week course for textiles practitioners to share stories of migration and develop their skills.
If you’re an artist, textile practitioner, or a maker with textile skills and have first, second or third generation migrants with connections to East London, then the team would love to hear from you!
Develop your practice and produce a new work alongside internationally acclaimed artist Lucy Orta – as part of the project, Traces: Stories of Migration.
We’re looking for 25 textile practitioners to take part in workshops at The Lab E20 every Wednesday from 9 November to 14 December, 6pm-8pm. To share stories, exchange craft skills and create textile artworks to be showcased at Bow Arts, from 2 June, 2023.
The project draws from the migrant history of the East End Rag Trade to build on the sustainable fashion and textile practices burgeoning in the East End.
Applicants must apply by Wednesday 26 October. Visit the website link in the side panel to find out more.
