Our tapestry is in progress! For the winter section of our tapestry we worked with the community in the borough of Tower Hamlets at two sites.
The tapestry was begun at Spitalfield’s City Farm, as part of an event which also featured Froglife’s virtual reality experience and the creation of a great crested newt painting soon to be mounted at the farm. We also had help from students at Morpeth Secondary School. Participants set the scene for a winter pond and took inspiration from the local wildlife at the farm and nearby Spitalfields market for their creations. The Poetry in Wood group took inspiration from the surroundings of Tower Hamlets and the London skyline to add to the tapestry with lots of London buildings and landmarks, as well as more toads!
