Celebrate valentines day with our love token workshop at Sprout Arts.  As part of the Loveliness of Lettering exhibition, Fabric Nation will be running a drop-in love token workshop from 10am to 6pm at Sprout Arts on February 14th.

Drop in during the day to stitch, glue and stamp a beautiful fabric and embroidery creation for someone you like, love or think is a little bit special!

Take inspiration from our fabulous selection of materials, embroidery books and vintage valentines cards to design and create your own love token.

Love tokens featured in Grayson Perry’s exhibition at the British Museum and his work at the Foundlings Museum and have been used in different ways, often between loved ones who have been separated, including convicts sent abroad far from their families, soldiers and their sweethearts, and parents leaving their children at the Foundlings Hospital.  Originally in the form of coins, more modern versions are made using textiles and embroidery to celebrate love and friendship and of course the valentines cards we send nowadays.
