Honeyscribe: On the Mend with Molly Rooke of Darn Good Studio


Honeyscribe is delighted that their artist in residence Molly Rooke of Darn Good Studio will also be exhibiting her beautiful mends in the Surveyor’s Office. *

Molly Rooke is presenting an exhibition featuring examples of exquisitely mended clothes and accessories that celebrate visible mending, darning and repairs as creative radical acts.

Throughout her residency Molly Rooke will be setting up her mending studio in the Long Room. She will share skills and inspire visitors to see how damaged clothing can be transformed by repairing, helping us to find beauty in the stories of our loved and well worn clothing.
