Louisa was commissioned to design and lead a textiles workshop in conjunction with Fun Palaces, Journey’s Festival in 2017, at North City Library. The theme was to be based around working within the community to ‘Welcome Refugees’. Louisa was asked to design and deliver a textile workshop which would result in a banner to be permanently be displayed in the library. Louisa invited the community to add silhouette cut-outs of the palms of their hands to add t the banner, showing collective solidarity of love and togetherness with their words and heart symbols.
