It’s been great to have artist Celine Condorelli taking up residence at the workshop for the past few weeks. She’s been fabricating pieces for her forthcoming show at the Chisenhale Gallery opening next month. Check out this amazing concrete drapery:

Jake Stevenson Grimberg has been busy at the bench today building a wooden bike frame from Bubinga African Rosewood (and that’s almost a tongue twister!). Looking great already – and keen to see how it shapes up next week and springs into motion.
So yesterday the transformation began of our rubble yard, with a workshop that showed you how to build your own raised beds as part of the Cultivate Urban Food Growing Festival. Using some old decking, work began with the help of a band of volunteers to build some planters that will incorporate some outdoor seating for those heady days of summer coming our way…
Thanks to everyone that helped out..and watch the garden of eden as it unfolds…

Furniture Maker Kotu Moyenda begins work on his new design inspired by two old tennis rackets and some wooden pallettes. Brilliant! Looking forward to seeing it unfold…

Check it out! Blackhorse Workshop is in this month’s FORM magazine where the focus is the forward-looking spirit of design education. Great to see in the context of all the regeneration work happening in Blackhorse Lane (by architects We Made That) and a nice profile too of our design identity created by the rather special Europa.
