Foyer display: Ali

The changing monthly display by the artists and craftspeoples group at St Martin-in-the-Fields in the Foyer of the Crypt during August is by Ali.

Each month a different member of the group will show an example of their work, so do look regularly to see the changing display.

The complementary pieces on display bring together Ali's sewing skills and her experience, in 2009, of breast cancer.

Brart I and Brart II were created from the contents of Ali's lingerie drawer after the experience of reconstructive breast surgery left her with a collection of beautiful but redundant bras. Sewing during convalescence enabled times of reflection and prayerful contemplation.

Since 2011, Ali has also shared this creative service with other women with breast cancer, showing the different ways that lost lingerie can be reclaimed and recycled into something beautiful. Learn more at:
