Broken Beauty: Mending Circle

Special Event

Join artist Alison Clark during her residency at Southwark Cathedral for a Mending Circle.

This is part of events to mark the first anniversary of the London Bridge Attack that affected the lives of many people in Southwark and beyond and included damage to the Cathedral itself.

Bring a piece of clothing to repair, sit together, mend and talk. Open to people of all faiths and none. This quiet gathering will take place in the Retrochoir in the Cathedral where Alison's installations on the theme of Broken Beauty will also be on display. The installations and the Mending Circle both demonstrate and reflect on the process of repair that acknowledges rather than hides damage and may in time lead to a new beauty. 

Please bring a piece of clothing to mend and sewing/knitting equipment. 

Please note that these are not taught sessions but an opportunity to mend in company. 

The event is free but places are limited so please book a space using the link above.
