Queer Craft day out! “We Get to Choose Our Families” exhibition and picnic!

August 6 @ 11:00 BST


We will meet at Altab Ali Park, across the road from the Whitechapel Gallery and make our way over to the exhibition after introductions! We can look around the gallery at our own pace as a group, in splinter groups or as individuals and meet back at the park when each of us are ready. If the weather is lovely, we could have a picnic and craft in the park, otherwise we will meet in a cafe to talk about the exhibition, life, our current craft projects, what our summer is treating us to, what’s good on Netflix etc etc etc

So bring your sarni’s, snacks, blankets and portable projects – sewing, embroidery, crochet, knitting, something you wanna mend, whatever is your current thing! I will bring some scissors to leave in the cloakroom at the gallery so they don’t get confiscated and something to keep any offcuts or loose threads in, safe from the wind and dispose of correctly after the crafty picnic!

This informal social is open to all LGBTQA+ who enjoy crafting and art in all its many forms! We will welcome anyone who identifies under the broad queer and trans umbrellas.
