A unique Outdoor Ironing Event is set to amuse and delight Saturday shoppers in King’s Lynn.
As part of the King’s Lynn Arts Centre Trust’s recent RE-HOME exhibition, artists Richard Layzell and Linda Theophilus will be delighting shoppers and commuters with a unique interactive performance event.
If you thought that ironing your clothes was a chore, feel for Richard and Linda as they embark on a marathon outdoor session of it between 10am and 3pm on Saturday 18 February!
The FREE event, entitled Hard Pressed, will take place under the Bandstand on Baxter’s Plain, and spectators and bystanders are welcome to take a look.
The public are invited to be part of Hard Pressed too – select one of the textile items, (table napkin, doily, tray cloth etc) which will be carefully starched and ironed by the artists with due ceremony and ritual. Once perfectly pressed it is yours to take away for free!
Working in partnership with Lynn Museum, Freebridge Community Housing and Vancouver Quarter, RE-HOME is a strand of Aspire, a 3 year project funded by the Arts Council England and conceived by Liz Falconbridge, Director of the King’s Lynn Arts Centre Trust.
The RE-HOME exhibition, taking place at the King’s Lynn Arts Centre (Tue – Sat 10am – 5pm), Lynn Museum (Tue – Sat 10am – 5pm), and Flat 149 Hillington Square (Tue, Thurs & Sat 11am – 3pm) continues until 10 March.
