In September and October 2011 Our Hut carried out workshops with the Women’s Group from St Stephen’s Children’s Centre as part of the All Aboard for Stockwell Project.
In the first session we visited the Stockwell Bus Garage where we were warmly welcomed by the General Manager, Colin Opher and his team. We drew the fantastic shapes of the roof and the children loved being bus drivers.
In the following two sessions we used the drawings and photos from our visit to inspire designs for bags, T-shirts and handkerchiefs. The handkerchiefs were on display at the London Printworks as part of a bigger exhibition of hankie designs from November 15th till December 14th 2011
Our second Community Group workshops were carried out in May 2012 with a group co-ordinated by Catherine Foreman of Stockwell Partnership.
