Art Assassins leading Sunday Spot inspired by the experimental spirit of the Peckham Experiment, January 2018.

Join the Art Assassins and Lucie Kordacova to customise clothes and fabric with embroidery, patchwork and collage.

Please bring along your old clothes and any fabric you’d like to to customise, some materials will be provided.

Over the last 18 months the Art Assassins have been researching the history of the pioneering health movement the Peckham Experiment, considering its relevance to health, self-organisation and art today. This event is inspired by the clothes exchanges which took place between members at the Peckham Experiment.

Sunday Spot is an ongoing series of free, drop-in family activities which takes place every Sunday from 2-4pm, suitable for children aged 3-12 years. All sessions are inclusive, for more information on access to the gallery please read here.

She has a BA in Fashion Design from the Technical University in Liberec and an MA in Fine Arts from J.E Purkyne University.
