2019 Palo Santo
Sophie Alston & Ingrid Pumayalla
Final Workshop & Launch Event
Saturday 6 April 12-3pm
‘Solace at St Peter’s’ is a further exploration of the consoling nature of making in a faith and community setting.
Palo Santo is an organic art installation made during the course of Lent, with the community and congregation of St Peter, De Beauvoir Town in Hackney. The title comes from Palo Santo, the name of a tree that grows in Peru that is considered to have mystical properties. The Spanish translation means ‘holy stick’.
