What is it you love about Walthamstow?

That’s the question curators from The Mill have posed to artists and residents in the borough for exhibition: We Love Walthamstow.

And they’ve responded in their droves, expressing what they love about the borough through a selection of exuberant photographs, prints, paintings, fabric art, drawings, stone carvings and words.

From teenagers in Priory Court depicting life on their estate to works by artists who took part in the E17 Art Trail, the community space will act as celebration of all things Walthamstow.

Take a look at our online gallery for a glimpse of the exhibition.

We Love Walthamstow will be held from February 14 to March 24 at The Mill, Coppermill Lane, Walthamstow. Details: 020 8521 3211, www.themill-coppermill.org
