  1. On Mending: stories of damage and repair

    Saturday 21 January, 4pm
    On Mending: stories of damage and repair
    Talk and book presentation by Celia Pym

    Celia Pym will be talking about her new book On Mending, sharing intimate stories from people's lives, of loss and love, as a result of mending the holes in their clothes. On Mending is a collection of ten stories of damaged garments – plus a rug and two backpacks – Celia mended in the last fifteen years. The stories record who the item belonged to, how it was damaged, how it was mended and where it is now. Not a ‘how-to’ book, this is rather an in- depth look into the damage that we do, as manifested by our outer layers, our clothes.
