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