Event description

Description

Tales from Lalibela

Laurence Impey and Catherine Chambers

Note - Event may have to be rescheduled if the COVID-19 restrictions are not relaxed sufficiently before 21 July.

Doors will open at 6:00pm with complimentary tea, coffee and biscuits available.

Laurence Impey lived in Ethiopia for three months, working as a volunteer English teacher in Lalibela between November 2016 and February 2017. On his return he published a small book documenting his trip, Abyssinia Revisited: Letters from Lalibela.

Catherine Chambers is a London based artist who makes frequent trips to Lalibela to document the life of some of the locals. Many of her paintings are of the Ethiopian family she stays with. Her portrait of Girma, a friend from Lalibela, was selected as part of the Royal Academy of Arts Summer Show in 2018.

The tales will be mostly about living, and working, in Lalibela so there won’t be much discussion about the churches. Anne Parsons, who has been travelling to Lalibela since 1995, will be moderating the discussion.

More of Catherine’s work can be seen on her Instagram account.

Abyssinia Revisited: Letters from Lalibela, ISBN 9781913036775, was published by Iam Self-Publishing in May 2019, at a UK list price of £6.99.
