*Klaxon* :: we’re about to put out our monthly newsletter and have clocked that we have not one but THREE new courses available on Yodomo 💚 . . Pictured we have the long awaited Pajaki course (filmed by @kar_pacz which will help you to create a chandelier that looks like this. (Mobile point) ☝🏼 (Desktop point) 👈🏼 . . And if you swipe right, you’ll see my own efforts following our new ‘Learn How to Draw’ course from @brightondrawing in partnership with @cassart1984 which is pretty meta... love those @derwentpencils too. Filmed by @pf_photographer who also filmed... . . ... the new smoke fire ceramics course from @studioranj 💨 🔥 which is finally live in the platform. Filmed @turning.earth studios in Lea Bridge. @studioranj shares his honed techniques to get that ancient smoke-fired effect.. . We’ve also got news on our Yodomo Dome @makemorefest, plus #londoncraftweek, and details on offline workshops coming up with @theculpeper (botanicals) and @littleduckthepicklery (fermenting and pickling) - not ours but we’d like to go! . . Sign up now through yodomo.co to get our newsletter later on today ☝🏼☝🏼☝🏼 (going out after I’ve had a cup of tea and a lie-down 💤)
Love this photo (credit: @fabio_vh) of Barley Massey @fabricationshackney prepping for our filming last week. . . You can pre-register now on Yodomo for her courses aimed at getting you back onto a sewing machine (pictured: @brothersewinguk) or using a machine for the first time. . As more of us turn our heads to #sustainablefashion there has never been a better time to dust down the machine and start making your own clothes !
Weekend projects a go-go! In my quest to find some images of @hanburypress studio today for @majesticdisorder, I discovered this pic of *My Own Work* - a paisley linocut, after a lesson from @hanburypress (and one before that from Peter Eatherley in France). This weekend will try and get back to a bit of making myself rather than all this business building malarkey which ironically has me looking at a screen permanently 📺🤪 . If you’re interested in learning bookbinding then @hanburypress teaches @londonbookarts regularly (check their site for classes) and she will also be doing some little demos for us in the Yodomo tent @makemorefest in August this summer ☀️
So this is really exciting news. Artist @evarothschild has been selected to represent Ireland 🇮🇪 at the Venice Biennale 🍾 If you’re in London, and haven’t been yet, then catch her ‘Iceberg Hits’ show before it ends next week at Modern Art, Vyner Street @stuartshavemodernart where this striking piece ‘Border’ in painted concrete features. Congrats to Eva!
Lovely way to spend a Monday - learning sewing skills and techniques from Barley Massey @fabricationshackney in Broadway Market, filming by @fabio_vh . Have learnt a lot today and ready to go back and dust down that sewing machine and make some cushions... . . If you want to refresh your sewing skills then preregistration is open for the now infamous (well, in these parts anyway) Fabrications Provisional Driving course - clear instruction to get you back into the driving seat ✂️
Missed most of the sun sorting out the bookshelves today #themission - and it’s starting to be the @studioranj pottery book takeover 📚 📖
