Stitch Academy is a large-scale public & private partnership to bring over 9000 square feet of workspace into creative and cultural use. The building 12-20 Rosina Street, a former printing factory, will provide affordable workspace for the fashion sector, makers studios, community engagement programmes, business mentoring for fashion designers and a bursary studio programme. The building is being delivered in partnership with ArtsThread with support from Invest in Hackney and the local property developer. Mortar is in the process of refurbishing the building whilst building local partnerships to deliver a comprehensive fundraising strategy for the organisation over the next five years. You can visit Stitch Academy’s crowdfunding page by following our link at the top of the page; please help us gain the support of Sadiq Khan, Mayor of London, by backing Stitch Academy today! We will be opening the doors of the building in late summer of 2019.
