Join the BODY BUILDERS at the Walthamstow Garden Party

Blackhorse Workshop will be taking over the craft marquee at this year’s Walthamstow Garden Party with a dynamic and fun filled range of making activities. With support from The Stow Brothers and Create Jobs, we will be presenting BODY BUILDERS – an experimental and wonderful collection of anatomical wearables to transform you into a magnificent flying machine or limb extensions to make you move like a creature of the jungle. The eight activities will suit an array of ages, using tools and materials to release a spectacle of human hybrids into the festival.

Partnering with A New Direction and Create Jobs, eight artist/makers will work with 15 local young people as part of  Creativity Works: Transforming Spaces training course. The four week trainee course will provide them with practical experience of delivering a public activity, and an insight into the world of design, making and event management. Each maker will be paired with a young person who will assist the workshop and give practical support throughout the weekend.

Our BODY BUILDER activities will be run by Lola Lely Studio, Christina French, Patrick King, Scribble & Smudge, Made by Ore, Enrique Melin, Laura Blake, andQueenie & Ted.

We can’t wait to share the fun with you all on 14th and 15th July. Keep an eye out for more updates soon.
