Saturday 18 June 2016 from 10am to 4pm - As part of our visit to Landmark Arts Centre, EAST have organised a workshop for those with some experience in stitching and textile work. Lines of Communication is a mixed media workshop where you will be using collage, hand and machine (optional) embroidery and printing to create simple envelope shapes and using ephemera to inspire a piece of work of your own imagining. Although initially inspired by our 'Between the Lines' exhibition it is not necessarily WWI related. The workshop will be led by Libby Smith, but there are ideas and inspiration from all the EAST members.
Booking must be made in advance, when a material list will be provided. Contact Landmark Arts Centre
at Ferry Road, Teddington, London, TW11 9NN through their website or telephone: 020 8977 7558.

EAST were very pleased when they heard that Havering Arts Council
were to use an image of work by Delia Pusey, for the cover of their Arts Festival leaflet for 2016. Delia's retrospective exhibition which is on from 5 to 9 April 2016 (10am to 4.30pm) at The Old Chapel
, St Mary's Lane Upminster, RM14 2QR, will include finished pieces of her textile work as well as her beautiful workbooks and sketchbooks.
Not only a lovely lady, sadly missed by EAST, but a very talented artist. An exhibition not to be missed.
For information on the rest of Havering Arts Festival visit www.havering.gov.uk/arts
as it continues until the autumn with other art exhibitions, events, talks, concerts and theatre performances. Havering Arts Festival can also be followed on Facebook (Facebook/haveringartscouncil), on Twitter (@haveringarts) and Instagram.
