Exploring wellbeing through making is this year's theme for a programme of talks, workshops, demonstrations and an exhibition work at Craft Central during London Craft Week. We start off the weeks programme with a talk by Celia Pym “For Damage and Repair: From a Norwegian Sweater to a Gold Cape”.
Using Annemor Sundbø's very damaged Ragpile sweater as a start point - Celia Pym will plot a conversation about mending damaged textiles. Discussing mending in the context of her residency at King’s College London’s Dissecting Room through to recent commissioned project with a damaged Gold Cape.
Craft Central with Stitch School will be launching their community created stitching project. It’s an opportunity for you to be the first to contribute to this collaborative piece of stitch art called a ‘The Supper Cloth’. Feed your creativity through stitching and co-creating whilst learning embroidery stitches.
Doors open at 6.30pm, talk starts at 7pm.
