Guerrilla Gardening 2011: Lavender Bags

Since 2006 have made lavender pillows harvested from their guerrilla grown lavender in South London. It’s this website’s key source of funding and all proceeds go towards guerrilla gardening. This year the volunteers who harvested the lavender included HRH the Duchess of Cornwall (a.k.a “Camilla The Guerrilla“). Our salvaged fabric is fine Italian cotton from Traid which were screen printed at London Printworks with this year’s design on one side and a detailed story of their creation on the reverse. They are all hand made in London by Lyla and the Haberdashery Division including the talented Scottish Penguin. Every pillow is contains about 70g of lavender and is 17cm by 14cm – the biggest Guerrilla Gardening have ever made.

Help support the project into 2012 by buying one of these lovely lavender bags here for a mere £15.

About London Printworks Trust

London Printworks Trust is the centre of excellence for textile print. Our passion has continued for twenty years since establishing ourselves as a charity to encourage professional artists, designers and emerging talent to learn, to share ideas, to produce new work and to fulfil their creative potential. Through our specialist hand printing equipment and workshop facilities we support and nurture creativity in people from the local community of Brixton, and across London. We are developing a new programme of residency places, courses, talks and new open access in response to the changes to funding. We appreciate and thank the support from our Board, Volunteers and Freelancers, without whom we would not have survived the changes to our funding. Continued support from The Leverhulme Trust and Lambeth also helps us to make a difference.
