Exhibition: East London Textile Arts

Friday, 19 January 2024 - Thursday, 18 April 2024
The Art Workers' Guild

Our latest exhibition showcases a collection of bold, richly textured works from East London Textile Arts (ELTA) - a participatory textile project run by Rachael Matthews, Sonia Tuttiett and Celia Ward who are Members of the Guild. The pieces in the exhibition were made in collaboration with a variety of community groups and organisations in Newham. They explore a range of themes and textile techniques, including embroidery, rag-rugging, and costume making.

ELTA provides long-term textile teaching, free of charge, to many different communities in East London. They have worked with the Watts Gallery, Tate Exchange, The V&A, King’s College London and will be showing this spring at the Louvre, Abu Dhabi.


The exhibition can be viewed by appointment. Please email or call 020 7713 0966 to book.
