River Wandle Clean Up cancelled

This has appeared in the events brochure available in the cafe scheduled for the 27th May. The decision to cancel is because the local military academy students will be doing a river clean up as part of London Rivers Week on the 25th June instead. By leaving it a month it means that there will be more time for litter to build up and give them plenty to collect. Please accept the volunteer and learning officers apologies for any disappointment caused.

 

Block printing workshop – Saturday 7th April

Join us for a block printing workshop in Wandle Park facilitated by Wandle Industrial Museum

Time/place: 2pm at the cafe
Cost: £3 per person (this price is subsidised by the Friends of Wandle Park)

The Wandle Industrial Museum will be facilitating a block printing workshop at the cafe in Wandle Park on Saturday 7th April at 2pm.

You will learn about the process of block printing that was used by the calico print works along the River Wandle including the Morris Works and Liberty Print Works.

After viewing a film showing how block-printing was done there will be an opportunity to handle original Liberty blocks and the tools used. This will be followed by a talk looking at a selection of patterns and designs produced by the printers. To close the workshop each attendee will have an opportunity to produce their own print using Morris inspired blocks.

Tickets cost £3 to be paid on the day in cash only (£3) – but please book a place in advance, either
