Sacred Stories


20 July to 19 September 2021

  • Tuesday - Sunday, 10am - 5pm. Free admission. Exhibition in the Discovery Lounge.

A display of wallpaper patterns designed by young people in the care of Waltham Forest in collaboration with Waltham Forest Virtual School and artist Angela Groundwater. Through workshops at the William Morris Gallery and via Zoom during lockdown, the young people made patterns using drawing and objects that are significant to them, creating designs that commemorate the stories of their lives. The design process was captured in a short film which will be shown in the exhibition.

Sacred Stories is a display celebrating young people’s lives and the unique paths they walk. It is a reminder that their —and our— sacred stories are everywhere.
