COLOURING IN THE PLACE
May 27, 2018 11:00am - 3:00pm talk/event
Colouring in Place is a natural dye and quilting event, inviting people to help make a map of the plants and trees they appreciate in east London while trying out natural dye and quilting techniques.
 
Participants will be invited to share their stories of local plant life either online or at the event. These stories will then be used for the quilt map, dyeing and adding cloth using plants as inspiration. Slowly a dye palette of east London will build, creating a map of the plants that are noticed and appreciated by people in the local area.
 
In collaboration with Chelsea Fringe www.chelseafringe.com/

Jan 25 - Mar 24, 2019
Private view Thu Jan 24 6pm - 9pm
Bow Arts presents a retrospective of works by painter Doreen Fletcher, curated by The Gentle Author.
 
Doreen Fletcher’s atmospheric urban landscapes have only recently captured an audience, when the discovery of her paintings revealed a distinctive vision of the changing capital. For the first time, the Nunnery Gallery will bring the majority of her work back under one roof, in the home of their making – the East End. The works reveal the drastic changes of east London’s streets across just three decades, remembering the businesses long forgotten and the buildings that have since been knocked down. A superb colourist, she applies her rigorous technique to recording the drama of the city in compelling and authoritative images.
