The Children's Magic Mural is the culmination of two
years work involving primary and secondary school
students from six Southwark schools. Each student has
designed and painted a self-portrait textile and
collaborated on the final presentation, a  hanging
mural and a celebration of the multicultural heritage,
artistry and craftsmanship of the children. It's the
first community outreach project of Bermondsey Street's
Fashion and Textile Museum, and this week's exhibition
is an opportunity to see inside the doors of the
distinctive pink and orange building before the museum
opens in Spring 2003.
