Silian Gallery -
Over the weekend, we welcomed multi-media artist Coco Wa to the gallery, to lead a small, intimate embroidery workshop within and in response to our ongoing exhibition, Outstretched, with Alexander Haywood.
The workshop focused on abstract pattern making based on the surrounding exhibition, encouraging students to engage and connect with themselves through using the meditative process of embroidery.
Thank you to everyone who joined us for the afternoon and we look forward to welcoming you all to the gallery again soon!
Please feel free to subscribe to our mailing list to keep up to date with our upcoming exhibitions and events! Link in Bio.
Alexander Haywood’s Outstretched is on view until 30th October 2023.

Uplift and Upcycle Embroidery Workshop
Held as part of the London Design Festival in the Park Royal Design District on the 16/09/2023.
Come along and learn the skill of hand embroidery to uplift and upcycle your wardrobe!
During this 2 hour session, I will teach 8 stitches ranging from beginner to more complex and decorative, and then give the students an opportunity to freestyle on their own items of clothing or patches of vintage fabric provided with the new skills that they have learnt.
The session will be focused on upcycling, so please bring an item of clothing to embellish and breathe new life into.
These give you a chance to not only connect with yourself and learn a new skill, but a chance to reconnect with and elevate your wardrobe.
