From 11.00 AM

"Blue Cornflowers” is a tapestry which began life as a participatory needlework for local Ukrainian women in Kingston on 23 May 2022. What started as a regular activity during Ariadne’s Thread’s Monday meetings at Baking Ideas in Tolworth very quickly developed into a broader collaboration with refugees stitching smaller pieces from across Europe. This is an ongoing project and so far over 110 people from different backgrounds, ages and abilities have contributed to this stitching effort. 

On Thursday 23 May the group will celebrate a 2-year anniversary of the project with the opening of their textile exhibition and free community stitching session at the Rose Cafe.

Participatory needlework will run from 11 AM to 12:30 PM followed by drinks reception and music until 2 PM. Anyone is welcome to join in.
