Manik Miah's embroidery




Manik Miah created the spectacular embroidered bird on our Christmas card this year. He was a keen member of the embroidery workshops we've held over the past few months at the Masbro Centre, in Hammersmith, with the Elders' Group there. The Elders' Group is a wonderful weekly gathering of older people who enjoy a range of activities and social events. Working with them was great fun.

Manik, originally from Bangladesh, has attended the Elders' Group since 2005 and enjoys the company and party atmosphere. He particularly liked embroidering as it reminded him of home.
"I find it very relaxing .. . In my country there is a big culture of needlework so I like it very much."
