In aid of the charity Freedom from Torture the South East London FFT Support Group have undertaken to raise awareness, raise money and stimulate an artistic response to the pressures that are felt by those who have survived torture and are trying to heal and recover. Freedom from Torture stands with torture survivors, providing therapy, legal and welfare support and is fighting for change. This is especially important now in these difficult times.

Woodturning is a speciality of one of our group. Michael Maisey, a member of the Worshipful Company of Turners, has created beautiful pieces that have been given to local artists, with a brief to decorate them as they wish. Bringing together outstanding art with extraordinary craftsmanship has resulted in a unique collection of superb pieces – a rare achievment. These pieces are being auctioned in order to support the needs of those being helped by Freedom from Torture.
