Our students in Leicester have been incredibly busy and creative:

On Wednesday the 21st of October 2015 Cosmopolitan Arts hosted an arts based event at the African Caribbean Centre Leicester, bringing communities together to celebrate the vast array of wonderful and culturally diverse communities there are in the area.

At this event, our tutor Tasneem Ali and her students from the Shama Women’s Centre soft furnishings course displayed and sold some of their wonderful creations.


Students have worked with Tasneem to learn a whole range of new skills. The range of furnishings include beautiful cushions with intricate designs, lamp shades and curtains. At the start of their course they concentrated on designing and making cushions. This year they have moved on to designing and making furnishings for a whole room.

Examples of beautiful lamp shades, soft furnishings and clothes made by the students and displayed at the event.
