Across December 2023, the local community took part in creative workshops to lovingly designing postcards through a range of creative methods including stamping, painting, embroidery, collaging and drawing, which were then delivered and distributed to local residents of Aldgate to spread some festive cheer. Each postcard maker was photographed with their postcard, and these photographs have formed the Postcard from Aldgate Exhibition.
These sessions were delivered in partnership with London Metropolitan University: with the creative lead Mrs Blues and photography students Ro and Albany. With thanks to The White Chapel Building, St Botolph without Aldgate and Central London Alliance for hosting & contributing the post box for the project.
