A Sense of Place: tactile book


In 2015/16 Islington Museum partnered with Morelands Children’s Centre on ‘A Sense of Place’, kindly funded by Islington Giving Supporting Families Programme and the Bunhill Councillors.

Over 5 day long workshops we worked with local families from the King’s Square Estate.

Working with artist Sarah Pimenta, families drew and then screen printed images from the past and present of the buildings and spaces that are important to them. Sarah combined the screen prints into a tactile cloth book. This beautiful art piece celebrates the creativity of our local families and the things that make our local area special to us.


See if you can spot the buildings where we live, work and have fun in!


There are some archival images within the book, reflecting how our area has changed over time. Can you spot the horse bus that would have taken us from Angel in the past?
