7 - 9pm

Hosted by Elizabeth Bailey & Ellie Dempsey

Folk Club welcome you to a belated celebration of Imbolc.

 

Folk Club is a place for the lost, found, and freshly made folklore and customs of the fair isles of Albion: Éire, Cymru, Alba and England. 

Imbolc is a Gaelic tradition, also known as St Brigid's Day. It falls on 1 February, which is about halfway between the winter solstice and the spring equinox.

We will be learning how to bake bread - a soda bread, and Elizabeth's mother's quick prove loaf.

While we wait for the dough to rise, we will make Brigid's Crosses, learn about Imbolc, and set some intentions for the coming Spring.

Doors 7:00pm

This event is now sold out, but join our mailing list or follow Folk Club for future events.

Staffordshire St presents Stove by a Whale, a collaboration between Steven He and Seongeun Lee, curated by Jiayue He.

 

A space where tides change, and the ground isn’t firm.

Together, they draw inspiration from their different journeys. Steven’s utopian fictions are envisioned through the making of objects whilst Seongeun translates the harsh realities of life into the language of dreams. Jiayue brings these two together to explore the notion of contemporary archives, questioning how individuals connect to their roots and claim their identities.
