Here are some photos from the wonderfully positive and uplifting session with teenage migrant girls as part of the Back To School programme at the Baytree Centre in Brixton.
We started the session with a walking greeting and sharing the girls experiences of coming to London on post-its. A discussion about their hopes, anxieties and dreams for life in London and starting their new schools bought up many issues the girls had in common, inspiring the block print designs for the fabric.
We are grateful to have had the chance to meet this amazing, courageous and insightful girls and help them to integrate their stories into something tangible and positive through the fabric design.
The fabrics will be made into shoulder bags for the girls to carry their school books in.
We wish them the best of luck with starting their new schools!
