A photograph of a patchwork textile, each patch depicts a breast.

Every woman has a story about their breasts. From prepubescent hopes and dreams to the joys and frustrations of breastfeeding. From the realities of old age to sexualisation, to operations for health and transgender women’s feminisation. These are women’s stories of pleasure, embarrassment, pain, joy, and comfort.

Comfort, Thursday 9th March, 2pm to 4pm, Free, Women only* 

(this workshop is also happening at 10am to 12pm book here)
