East London Textile Arts (ELTA) is a participatory crafts project based in Newham, East London. We work with diverse groups of all abilities on a long term developmental basis building a wide range of skills within communities.

We create striking artworks and sell our cards, decorated papers and printed fabrics at open days and craft shops in East London. We work with adults with learning disabilities, and we collaborate with visiting artists while training unemployed young people. 

Information about weekly classes can be found here. All are welcome, from beginners to highly skilled.

ELTA now has home-working kits available for two projects:

1. Embroidering a Community Garden

2. Kalila wa Dimna:

Illustrating an ancient fable about friendship and migration featuring a crow, a turtle,

a mouse and a deer.
