Thank you to everyone who came to our Summer Festival. We have a fantastic time and hope you did too. The society is currently planning our next steps, and when we’re ready we will announce all future events/plans on this site.


Upcoming events:

South East London Wool & Textile Society Winter Fair

Mycenae House, 90 Mycenae Rd, London SE3 7SE

Saturday 10th November 2018

Meet local designers and makers, buy unique and exclusive products, and the materials to make your own creations at our winter fair. More details coming soon.



South East London is home to a wide variety of people from different cultures and backgrounds. The area also has a rich history, with military associations with Greenwich and Woolwich Arsenal, and textiles being taught and created at Goldsmiths College and Ravensbourne University.

South East London Textile Society is a group of local designers and makers with a love of textiles and the south east corner of London. We are working to explore and promote the cultural significance of textiles to the area and the people who live and work here.

Follow us on Twitter, or join the Friends of SELWAT* Facebook Group (*South East London Wool & Textiles!) to keep up to date with what we’re up to.


Winter Fair

Date for your diaries – we will be running a winter fair at Mycenae House on 10th November. Lots of exciting makers, entertainment and hopefully a couple of low cost workshops. We’ll be sharing more information soon, keep checking the website and social media
