Over the course of two days in October 2021, Dr Rachel Scott and artist Sonia Tuttiett from East London Textile Arts (ELTA) led workshops with year 6 pupils at Sir John Heron Primary School in Newham, East London.

The workshops covered multiple areas of the curriculum: literacy, languages, art and design, and elements of PSHE (Personal, social, health and economic). Our purpose was multiple: to engage children with questions of cross-cultural encounters using Kalila wa-Dimna as a starting point; to explore issues of identity, community, and migration; to get them engaged with languages in a fun way, and utilising knowledge of any home languages; and to give them an opportunity to get creative and make works of art that will be shown in the exhibition at the P21 Gallery (11 May-12 June 2022) alongside the work of professional artists.
