Mudlark Walks: Flotsam Talismans
Thu 6 & Fri 7 Sep, 6.30pm & Sat 9 Sep, 5pmPast event
A still-life photography and historical artefact exhibition
For the last year Hannah Smiles has been photographing the historical artefacts that some of London’s most prolific Mudlarks have found along the banks of the River Thames.
This beautiful exhibition includes photography and the actual artefacts both rare and historical ranging from tudor pins to WWII shells, medieval pottery and animal bones, to human teeth and messages in bottles.
There will be a series of talks during the week by Mudlarks, discussing the history of their finds and why they are so passionate about mudlarking. Speakers and timings are to be confirmed, and more information can be found here.
