In April, artist Tereza Buskova will revive the ancient and almost forgotten English tradition of ‘Clipping the Church’ in Erdington. Baked goods will be paraded; costumed performers and locals will be invited to join hands, dance and move around the outside of a church in Erdington, in a modern take on a ceremony celebrating motherhood and families thought to have originated in the 16th Century.

On 6 February and 19 March join Tereza in getting messy and making salt dough decorations which will be used for decorating St Barnabas’ Church as part of the final ‘Clipping’. Try your hand at making beautiful traditional Eastern European plaited doughs, or express what motherhood means to you by using only flour, water and salt!

Clipping the Church is supported by the National Lottery through Arts Council England, Czech Centre and Shaw and Co Solicitors in collaboration with Czech and Slovak Club, Erdington Town Centre, John Taylor Hospice, Kingstanding Food Community, Loaf and St Barnabas Church Centre.
