Alphabets of the World

Alphabets of the World is a textile and design project based in Manor Park and run by Celia Ward (who is a Commission For Mission artist). The aim of the project is to make a series of hangings based around the different alphabets in the area. The Roman alphabet has been the first, with Arabic, Hindi and Romanian hangings in progress. Most of the sewing is done by a group of women from diverse backgrounds who meet every Wednesday morning at St Barnabas Manor Park.

This Alphabets of the World hanging is currently on display as part of the West Ham Festival at All Saints West Ham.
