East London Textile Arts is an independent organisation working in East London. It was set up by local people of different faiths and ethnicities to make textiles that reflect the cultural diversity of the area.

A small project reliant on our own fundraising, we work in partnership with local community centres. We also have an outreach program aimed at people who cannot access mainstream creative opportunities for reasons of health, family ties or economic constraints.
