The Story of the Embroidered Garden

April 27, 2009
Bagaan had its first outing at last summer's Picnic where it was unveiled by Sandra Kabir (left), director of BRAC UK.

Sixteen women living around Arnold Circus got together over the space of a year to create a wall-hanging called ‘Bagaan’, or ‘Garden’ in Bengali. It had its first outing at last year’s Picnic, where it was unveiled by Sandra Kabir, Director of BRAC UK (left) and later given its official launch by Jack Lohman, director of the Museum of London who formally invited it to his Museum.  The story of the lovely hanging and the women who made it, plus a stunning full-colour reproduction, is now available free from Leila’s Shop on Calvert Avenue, or for £2 for p/p from Poster, 1 Gascoigne Place, E2 LY. (Cheques made out to Friends of Arnold Circus).
