Following on from the success of last years Makers Playground, next week we’ll be hosting a series of talks and workshops for London Design Festival asking how wood can be pushed past tradition, past common knowledge and past standard use. How can it as a material be relevant to the moment and speak to the future?  We’ll have talks from TV author Rob Penn on his exploration of the ash tree, alternative joinery classes with Micaella Pedros, explorations of kerning (bending) wood from designer Lola Lely, wood dyeing with Hazel Stark, and discussion from ALP Technologies about the transformation of wood into an energy resource.
