Tidings of Comfort & Joy

Cutty Sark

Cutty Sark Gardens, King William Walk, Greenwich, SE10 9HT

Today’s colourful Advent Window can be found at the Cutty Sark. It was created by artist Cash Aspeek and pupils from the Resource base at Athelney Primary School in Lewisham.

Cash drew inspiration from wool, one of Cutty Sark’s cargoes, and the well-known patterns found on comforting wooly jumpers used in Scotland, Cutty Sark’s birthplace. Cash worked with the students over the course of a day, encouraging the creation of geometric patterns using square sheets of celophane on clear acetate.

The wonderful window can be found on north-east end of the ship (the side closest to the Thames).

The Advent Window is best seen after dark. It will be ready at 5 p.m. on 6 December.
