At The Hornbeam Café right plonk in the “Appetite” festival time RAGWORKS is on display. Down came the nine elephants of Goa and up went linen bags embellished with recycled and rescued textiles and sequins.
The Café was looking beautiful today with the hanging bags, Kat in her African dress and the sun streaming onto the buggies and jam-jars. Well worth a visit and the hot chocolate!
RAGWORKS a wall-hangings collection made entirely by hand from discarded textiles is back at
the Hornbeam Café in Bakers Arms E17.
The works depict world folk-lore and nursery rhyme characters. During Black History Month hanging proudly are Anansi, Leo, The Palm-Oil Daughter and gorgeous in her harem trousers, young Cinderella.
The Hornbeam vegan Café is always buzzing with workshops, meetings, music and good cheer. They sell a wickedly delicious hot chocolate in a mug as tall as The Orbit and vegan sausages in posh bread. On Wednesdays it’s a sight to see the organic veg being packed up for delivery and the collection of useful items in the recycling bays ready to be re-homed.
All in all a good space in a good place, I’d say.
Regards, Gillian Lawrence
