October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and Fulham's Pottery Cafe is marking it with two special events.

On Thursday October 11, Pottery Cafe at 735 Fulham Road is inviting local ladies to take part in Breast Plates, offering the chance to try a spot of breast printing.

For one night only, women will be encouraged to strip off and create an individual “Breast Plate”, which will later be displayed anonymously at a public exhibition.

Breast Plates takes place between 6.30pm and 10pm, and the cost is £20 including free tea and coffee, with a minimum of £14 donated to the Beast Breast Cancer campaign, which is part of Cancer Research UK.

This evening will be followed by a public exhibition of the creative results on October 25 from 7.30 to 10pm. Entrance to the exhibition will be £5 including drinks and nibbles, with all the proceeds going to the Beat Breast Cancer campaign.

Alexandra O’Byrne, the studio assistant behind this initiative, says: " The evening will be entertaining, creative and unforgettable and we’re encouraging all women to participate. This is an issue which affects every woman in one form or another and the idea behind ‘Breast Plates’ is to find anartistic and entertaining way of encouraging awareness of the disease and solidarity in the face of an issue that can effect not only the women who suffer with the disease, but their family and friends as well.

" We also want to encourage women to be proud of their bodies, whatever shape or size and be brave enough to put them on show for this worthy cause."
