During the first mailart and letter writing meetup in August, we found that the art of letter-writing hasn't quite been forgotten. In fact, many of us positively loved the idea of sending and receiving letters in the post!
Hannah, our lovely organiser from the BPMA suggested that we run another in September, this time at the Debden Museum collection store, where the BPMA keep all the big exhibition pieces like historical post vans and postboxes, and even went so far as to arrange a full Mailart Open Day!
To link in with this, Hannah, Elena and Andy are organising another mailart and letter-writing meetup with CREATE London and everyone is invited!
Whether you are a regular letter-writer or have never heard of mailart, you're invited to come along to Debden to make mailart or write a letter surrounded by some of the coolest postal inspiration London can offer. The museum will set us up with a table and some craft materials, but of course you are encouraged to bring out your own craft materials too.
The full schedule for this meetup is yet to be decided, but hope to see a lot of you along!
Debden is a mere 20 minutes from Stratford on the Central line. Give us a shout in the comments if you need directions
