What's on in March

Artist Celia Pym gives a talk about her work with focus on darning and mending projects, including the biggest mend she has done – Norwegian Sweater, project with Richard Wingate at KCL dissecting room, Mending and Anatomy, practicing darning and the effort to ‘get your darning and tension right, perfect’: new work Practice Socks. The talk will be about why Celia is attracted to repaired things, the intimacy of being shown the holes in other people’s clothes, and why making holes visible in repair is exciting.
