First Chinese Dragon in Lewisham

New Cross Learning (formerly the library) did a fantastic job of building a dragon in the library with local school children and volunteers, then parading the streets. See it here…

Stamp making workshop. Dec 4 and 11

 Candida is a book binder from New Cross and makes greeting cards, books and gifts using her handcarved stamps.
Try your hand at her workshop.
It’s a great skill and can be used to make items really personal (it’s also very quick which comes in handy when making a lot of wrapping paper!). I’ve attached a poster and would be really grateful if you could help me out by spreading the word! The courses will be taught in small groups of 5-6 so people will get plenty of one to one help and time to create beautiful wrapping paper, simple books and cards while having a friendly chat! All the best
