COMMISSIONED by Silveira House, a Jesuit Mission in Zimbabwe, this rug (right) was designed and made in the Wedge Workshop by John Collier, a member of the Lambeth L'Arche community. It will hang in the Mission's Church of the Assumption in Harare, and represents the text for the Assumption (Revelation, 12,v. 1-4).
It hangs six foot by four foot. It was commissioned by Fr David Harold Barry, chaplain of Faith and Light in Zimbabwe and director of Silveira House, a leadership training centre working closely with the government, offering skills in industrial relations, trade union work, agriculture, commerce and crafts. L'Arche is an ecumenical Christian community where people with a mental handicap and assistants live and work together.
