Movie by Qian Yuan

We had a fun aftenoon in the Dalston Eastern Curve Garden workshop surrounded by lush plants and quiet tranquility in the heart of bustling Dalston. Thank you to everybody who came along and took part so enthusiastically and creatively and also to Kitty the Hackney Wow! reporter for her story yesterday.
