Woodblock printing workshop for families

2 - 4pm

Come down to Star Lane Pizza Bar and join us at The Line for a free, artist-led workshop as part of the ‘Here to There’ project. ‘Here to There’ will see a series of new artworks located between Star Lane Station and Cody Dock that will direct people to the route of The Line that runs along the river Lea.

Artist Katie Schwab will lead this workshop, in which you will learn about the technique of woodblock printing, a process rooted in this area of Newham, block-printed textiles historically having been manufactured on the Lower Lea. Create your own block printed designs and discover the possibilities of this ancient process.

This workshop is part of the development of a new commission, Here to There, by artist Katie Schwab.

Three new public art commissions are being developed by The Line with support from the London Borough of Newham’s ‘Connecting to Opportunities’ programme. The project will see investment in infrastructure, heritage and culture for Newham residents. The artworks, which will be free for the public to enjoy year-round, are being designed for an area where green spaces are hard to find, and the tidal River Lea is often overlooked – or is yet to be discovered – by locals and visitors from further afield. The commissions are being developed in collaboration with residents by means of a co-commissioning model, which is an exciting new approach for The Line. The project is helping to build a greater sense of ownership of the area for locals, businesses, and visitors to Cody Dock by connecting with artists and public spaces in new ways.

Artist Katie Schwab has been selected by The Line’s co-commissioning group to develop a series of artworks at a key location on The Line, between Star Lane Station and the River Lea at Cody Dock. The aim of the commission is to help direct people to and from the station and Cody Dock and the river, where they can continue along the route of The Line.
