This hands-on workshop event with Michelle Johansen explores the back streets of C. A. Mathew’s East End using press cuttings, maps, photographs and ephemera from our archives. Be prepared to ‘meet’ East End desperadoes and Eastern European anarchists from our historic collections before sharing your findings informally over a cup of tea or coffee.

Dr Michelle Johansen is a social historian based in the learning team at Bishopsgate Institute. Since 2006 Michelle has been devising and delivering engaging archive learning sessions on the history of modern London to a range of audiences, from primary school pupils to university students to adult learners. Michelle is an associate of the Raphael Samuel History Centre.

The workshop will run from 10.30am - 1.00pm.

Why not visit Eleven Spitalfields Gallery (by appointment only weekdays) from 7 March to 25 April 2014 to see the wonderful photographs of Spitalfields that C. A. Mathew took over 100 years ago. These rarely seen images from our archives, carefully restored by photographer Jeremy Freedman, have inspired and complement the East End in Focus series.
