An art exhibition by elders of Katherine Low Settlement Age Well programme.
Battersea Park’s Pump House gallery is hosting a free mixed media exhibition by the Battersea Zoomers, charting their creative journey through the Covid-19 pandemic and beyond.
During the pandemic and lockdown, the Battersea Zoomers started when the Age Well programme run by the Katherine Low Settlement (KLS) connected with 575 Wandsworth Road, a local National Trust property, to take part in a series of virtual visits, talks and creative workshops.
Following the pandemic the Battersea Zoomers were able to visit 575 Wandsworth Road in person and produce collages inspired by the Botticello decoupage in the dining room.
Exhibition runs from 19-22 October 2022, 11am to 6pm. The gallery is only open 2-6pm on 21 October.
