Loving Earth: A legacy of lockdown

Updated: 6 days ago



Are you feeling creative?

Are you concerned about the environment?

Do you live, work or study in Merton?

The COVID Pandemic has affected people in different ways. As well as suffering, sorrow, fear, loneliness, hard work for many, it's also been a time to reflect on how we relate to our environment and how we could do things differently in future.


This is a unique time in our history and we invite you to join a community textile project, brought to you by Sustainable Merton and the Loving Earth Project, to explore these issues and help create a legacy of this period with a vision of a more sustainable future in Merton.


What are we asking you to do?


You are invited to create a textile panel in any style to illustrate your reflections, measuring 30cm by 30cm (excluding borders). We hope your creation along with a summary of your work will be part of a local exhibition in Spring 2021, travel as part of the Loving Earth Project's international exhibition and return to form a lasting legacy in Merton.


We will be running a number of workshops to get you started, guide you along the way and help you produce a panel to be proud of, whether you're an expert textile artist or want to start learning to sew.


Get involved!


Please get in touch if you are interested in making a panel or would like to volunteer your time to help make this project happen.
