Wandsworth prisoners show some fine needlework
Enjoy an evening of Fine Cell Work at the De Morgan Centre. The charity trains prisoners in highly skilled and paid needlework, using William De Morgan’s tile designs for many of their cushion ranges.
You will have the chance to see the gallery and the Fine Cell Work temporary exhibition, as well as purchase from a range of cushions, bags and small items. There is also the opportunity to view Wandsworth Museum’s permanent collection and their temporary exhibition: Separation and Silence: Wandsworth Prison.
There will be talks from a guest speaker from Fine Cell Work, and from the De Morgan Centre’s curator, Claire Longworth. The event is free and refreshments (including wine) will be available from Wandsworth Museum’s café.
Wednesday November 2nd, 6.00pm-9.00pm Admission: FREE
Talks will begin from 7:30pm
