Every year many of Brighton’s studios, workshops and galleries open their doors to allow everyone in for sneak-peeks and a chance to find out more about this fine city’s creative element.
As part of this, we will have some of our one-off pieces for sale at Homage, a homewares shop based in the Seven Dials area of town.
Mark and Liza originally had their store here in Hackney but have since made the move to clean air and pastures new on the south coast – in keeping, they are calling their opening during AOH, “London by the Sea” and featuring our work alongside Grain & Knot, Daisy Cooper Ceramics and Adam Ross Ceramics.
We’re honoured to be in such company!
It runs until the end of May and info can be found below;
Very pleased to have been accepted to exhibit at Made London – Bloomsbury…….a leading Design and Craft fair set in the beautiful Mary Ward House in Bloomsbury. The house is worth a visit alone (it was an arts eduction centre for the poor of London), and the list of exhibitors in Ceramics, Woodwork, Jewellry among others is of the highest standard!
We’ll be there Friday 29th to Sunday 1st May, with a broad selection of one-off boards and unique pieces – and would love to see you there!
Not long ago we had a fun day filming with our buddies at HiLow films (see their work here) – big thanks to Emily and Nev for their direction and editing – and big thanks too to Joe (he’s here), for his fine work from behind the camera.
And last but not least, a big thanks to Asher (our very own Head of Production) who scored the film and is basically very talented all round (he’s the one in the jumpsuit)……
At the end of November, every year, many of the workshops on the Mews open their doors to the public.
Pioneered by Cressida Bell who held her first event here on the Mews 31 years ago, it’s a great chance to see where the magic happens! Also a great opportunity to meet the makers and buy the products they lovingly create in this vibrant corner of East London.
A lot has changed round here recently, and there are plenty of local eating options too – Pacific Social Club, Verden, Uchi, the Bonneville to name but a few.
And Broadway Market (Saturday) and Chatsworth Road (Sunday), are 2 amazing markets only a short stroll away.
We’ll have the mulled wine mulling and maybe break out some of the year’s first mince pies – so please come on down and say hello!
This year, we’re happy to be joined by the following guests –
Over much of 2015, we’ve gathered images of the view from behind our stall at Broadway Market – it’s a fine way to pass the time as the market starts to bustle on a Saturday morning. We have often thought our boards as characterful, and suppose this is another way to bring them to life!
We hope you enjoy them – more to be added soon………..
Hoxton Mini Press have recently released a new title, their biggest book yet!
Called Makers of East London, its more than 300 pages are full of craftspeople from many disciplines; shoe, furniture, violin and chopping-board makers (ahem, yes we made it in!) to name a few……
Beautifully written by Katie Treggiden (Confessions of a Design Geek), and with very fine portraits and images by Charlotte Schreiber, it covers many interesting aspects and back-stories of running small creative businesses in London’s East End.
Certainly worth looking at (and would no doubt make a fine Christmas present), the publication is available from the lovely folk at Hoxton Mini Press, directly – please visit their site here.
On Saturday the 19th September, we’re happy to be taking part in the Gail’s Garden Party, in sunny Hampstead!
It’s Gail’s Bakery’s 10th birthday, so should be an extra special one this year – and a weekend potter around Hampstead is always time well spent!
Alongside some other high-quality craft producers of food and accessories, we’ll be selling some particularly beautiful boards and other prototypes that rarely make it out of the workshop – come down and say Hi…..
Running from 11 till 5pm, it’s located right by Gail’s Bakery on Oriel Place, Hampstead.
We were approached to install some of our pieces on the newly renovated walls of Gail’s Bakery’s 21st London store in Temple Fortune NW11. Deep, narrow, full of light and foliage, it is a peach of a space – beautifully designed by the Hackney-based architecture firm Red Deer.
As well as a range of our boards taking pride of place on their walls, we were commissioned to create a bread peel for their master baker, Roy. At almost 6 feet in length, we had a lot of fun shaping that giant board / paddle / spoon hybrid!
