The show celebrates the work of local people who came together to make hand-stitched quilts through Whittington Park Community Association, Spitalfields City Farm , ActiveArt and PBHA’s Creative Industries.
The quilts are on display at Outpost, PBHA’s community hub at 546 Holloway Road, until 5 April.
Chief Executive Clare Norton said, ‘PBHA is delighted to showcase this collaboration of individuals, talents and communities through the medium of contemporary craft.’
Creative Industries Coordinator Orla O’Flanagan said: ‘Community quilt-making is a simple but powerful way to build skills, wellbeing and social connection. Sewing together hand-stitched quilts is not only therapeutic for makers, but also a striking way to layer a narrative and tell a shared story.’
For anyone who’d like try their hand at quilt-making, Outpost is hosting free Saturday sewing workshops on Saturday 14 and 28 March.
