Overview

We invite you to join us for a unique after-hours experience at Pitzhanger. This is a chance for our community to come together and visit Grayson Perry’s acclaimed exhibition, The Vanity of Small Differences, alongside a diverse range of talks and workshops. Everyone is welcome to be a part of this inclusive event.

Drawing on the woven tapestries in the exhibition, Pitzhanger has teamed up with the Ealing Repair Café, and we invite you to come with your mending pile of clothes for advice and guidance. Ealing Repair Café volunteers will be on hand to teach you how to repair your clothes and will bring along their sewing machine so you can try out alterations and mending seams.

Date and Time

Thursday 1 August 2024
5–8pm

Venue

Pitzhanger Manor & Gallery
Ealing Green, London W5 5EQ

Tickets

Free with General Admission.

The Ealing Repair Café was established to teach people how to repair their clothes using patching or darning techniques rather than discarding them. This initiative is a step towards creating a circular economy for clothes and moving away from fast-disposable fashion. The Repair Café is a proud part of the Ealing Transition Initiative, inspiring us all to make a positive impact on sustainability. 

Alongside this, artist Matt Small will talk about his exhibition This Is England, which was created to depict the full England squad and manager of the EURO 2020 England football team—a group of players from a diverse set of backgrounds who made history with their sporting achievement and their ability to engage and inspire the nation. Commissioned by the Football Association, all portraits were exhibited at the St George’s Park training ground during the EURO 2020 finals in the summer of 2021 and were later exhibited at Pitzhanger.

Our café partner, Bella Puglia, will serve a range of delicious alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks all evening, and exhibitions across the manor will be open until 8pm.

All activities are free with general admission. However, to participate in the Repair Café event, the organisers ask for a donation of £5 per participant to cover equipment costs and expenses.
