The Wandle Wardrobe: stories of life in lockdown along the Wandle Trail, as revealed through our lost clothes.

Saturday 11 September 11am - 4pm

Textile artist Elly Platt has walked the length of the Wandle Trail in South London collecting lost or discarded textiles. The River Wandle has a rich history as a site of textile production and is also an ecological success story. The Wandle Wardrobe explores how our relationship with the river has changed, and how our lost clothes might suggest the ways we interact with the natural world. Elly has presented her collections of lost clothes and textile scraps as quilts.

Elly will be present with the work she has created during this fascinating project. (Under cover in Honeywood’s garden).

FREE entry. Book in advance here.

About Honeywood Museum

Honeywood Museum is a Grade II listed building next to the picturesque Carshalton Ponds in the heart of Carshalton's historic Conservation Area. The house dates to the 17th century with Victorian and Edwardian extensions, including a very fine billiards room. Permanent exhibitions tell the fascinating history of the house and the people who lived there and illustrate the history of the Borough of Sutton and the development of Carshalton.
