Approaching the festive season we're delighted to invite you to the Thursday Lates in our pop up in the south arcade of Islington Square. Every Thursday from the 25th November and up till Christmas we'll stay open till 9pm - along with other shops, restaurants and cafe's in the square. There will some traditional festive treats like mince pies, mulled wine and christmas carrolls - that we all love after all .. Pick a Thursday for your Late night pop !
Workshops are such a great way of testing new territories and to get good hands on experiences with new materials and techniques, guided by someone who really knows ...
COIL POTTERY WORKSHOP with NKDWARE
We are really pleased to have Kirsi Enkovaara, the founder of Nkdware, hosting a Coil Pottery Workshop to make a DIY design bowl in our pop up - a return after her presence on our mezzanine floor during the London Design Festival week.
You might have visited her then ?
The workshop offers amateur ceramicists – children and adults alike – an opportunity to experiment with the coiling technique and make their own ceramic piece with a specially-created template designed by the Kirsi. The clay used in the workshop is air dried clay, therefore will not be fired and you can take it home directly from the workshop.
Join us for evening of coiling!
KOKEDAMA WORKSHOP with EMIFUJISAWA
The making of Kokedama (苔⽟玉 / moss ball) was born out of the desire of the less affluent population in Japan for a simpler, more accessible way to enjoy the beauty of bonsai in their everyday lives.
You don’t need an entire garden to enjoy a bit of gardening - to relax and switch off from the renewed busy London life. All you need is a special soil mixture, moss, string and a small plant to get your hands into Japanese ornamental plant making and to bring special beauty to your home.
No experience is required. While you focus on your moss art plant, we'll serve you some matcha treats to keep you going too ! Join us for a return to nature.
Hope to see you !
