Textile Art Workshop at St Thomas’s Primary School

Ekta Kaul Workshop with Children at St Thomas's School

This month I had the pleasure of visiting St Thomas’ Primary School in West London to talk to the Year 1 children about my practice and do an art project with them using eco-printing and stitch. Over two days we used locally foraged plants and flowers to eco-print fabrics with natural patterns, before embroidering them with simple leaf motifs. It was wonderful to see how enthusiastically the children took to printing and dyeing. I was so impressed with their creativity, willingness to learn and their tenacity. It was so satisfying to see them engaging with art and nature.

Huge thanks to all the children and staff St Thomas’ school for a lovely couple of days!
