Our Stories in Stitch at St Margaret’s Church
Explore Unity Hubb (hubb meaning love in Arabic) and St Margaret’s Church in Ward End on a guided tour. Today a community resource, the grade II listed church’s history dates back to 1516. Heritage monuments and artefacts include a stained-glass window by Edward Burne-Jones, an Abraham window which links the faiths of Christianity, Judaism and Islam and a monument to local historian and poet William Hutton.
Visitors can also enjoy the Our Stories in Stitch exhibition which has been created by women from Ward End’s diverse communities in a recent project with Woolly Mammoth Stitch Works CIC in collaboration with St Margaret’s Community Trust and Christ Church. These women’s individual life stories and experiences are represented in tapestry stitch artworks and in words by the artists and poet Amerah Saleh.
This event is a collaboration between St Margaret’s Community Trust, Christ Church and Woolly Mammoth Stitch Works CIC.
