The Peckham Supper Cloth at Peckham Festival


  • Unit 8, Copeland Park 133 Copeland Road, Peckham London, SE15 3SN United Kingdom (map)

As part Peckham Festival 2018, Stitchโ€“School's embroidery experts invite passers-by to drop in and collaborate stitching a large piece of printed fabric โ€˜The Peckham Supper Clothโ€™. 

The Peckham Supper Cloth was first stitched during Peckham Craft Weekend in May 2018, and returns to Peckham Festival to continue this work. The event will feature a brand new embroidery table, kindly constructed and sponsored by Footprint Scenery. 

The Supper Cloth aims to bring people together offering a chance to get away from mobile devices and embrace the resurgence of hand embroidery. The digital printed linen stretched on the table provides a base to practice and focus stitching as well as encouraging conversation through communal making and slow stitching as an antidote to modern life.

This is a free drop in event, welcoming all ages and abilities. The cloth will be open at the following times:

Saturday 15 Sept 11am - 6pm

Sunday 16 Sept 11am - 6pm
