Sew, Stitch & Knit
We are running a Sew, Stitch and Knit club at The Curve, alongside Fatima Bourenane. Fatima used to run a similar club with her friend Fauzia, who tragically passed away with her three children in the Grenfell Tower. This club has been set up to honour her memory and to continue the important work that Fatima and Fauzia were doing. We are helping attendees develop valuable skills in design and how to create marketable products from those designs. We are using designs from many different countries for inspiration, celebrating culture and heritage from around the world. We aim to organise a pop-up shop in June to showcase the products created and to commemorate the one-year anniversary since the Grenfell Tower Tragedy. Taking part in an activity such as this can be therapeutic and it promotes general wellbeing through the acquisition and development of invaluable skills.
