For more information please contact email@example.com or 020 3039 3333.
Each week members of the community of all ages and backgrounds are invited to come and enjoy the creativity and craft of vibrant Bangladesh. These inclusive and stimulating weekly workshops are a great way to meet new people and bring the community together.
What to expect
These participant led workshops engage your senses and your creativity; whether it’s sewing and textiles, painting, music, dance, singing, or even some food tasting.
Throughout these workshops, there will be a chance to get involved in a bigger project, together designing and building a beautiful peacock installation which will then tour community centres, schools and libraries throughout Poplar!
All abilities and ages welcome.
