Madge Gill: Myrninerest, William Morris Gallery, Walthamstow

Madge Gill was born in Walthamstow and spent most of her years living in East London. A self-taught, visionary artist, she created meticulous artworks, many of which she attributed to Myrninerest, her spirit-guide that she came to embody. This landmark exhibition in her hometown brings together drawings, newly uncovered large-scale embroideries, textiles and archival objects, many of which have never been exhibited before.

Open Tuesday – Sunday, 10am – 5pm. Free admission (suggested donation £5)

Wed 2 Oct
The ‘Naughty’ Fifth Series Launch Party, The Social, London

Join all of us here at Rough Trade Books down at the best bar in London, The Social to clink a glass in celebration of this latest and naughtiest batch of our Editions series. We’ll have readings from Joe Dunthorne and Max Sydney Smith plus Adelle Stripe in conversation with James Endeacott and Cold War Steve & Jonny Banger in conversation with Arthur ‘Artwork’ Smith. We’re also inviting a few very special guests, one who we can announce—Nick Hand from The Letterpress Collective with his Printing Bike—and another one or two who we can’t announce until nearer the time, but trust us, it will be one hell of a night with the usual high-jinks and good music courtesy of Heavenly Recordings’ legendary party-girl Katherine aka DJ Pick ‘n’ Mix!

Limited amount of tickets available.
