Giddy Round the Garden

It was all about ditching shank’s pony last weekend, and letting the kids canter round the Walthamstow Garden Party  on their own hobby horse steed. Inspired by William Morris’ love of dressing up, we offered a drop-in workshop all weekend for kids to make their own industrial version of the classic wooden toy. Not to mention the rather fabulous hand painted signage for the Useful & Beautiful tent…

The Blackhorse Technician crew were on hand to guide makers each step of the fabrication process, teaching basic woodwork skills from sawing, to sanding, drilling and using a workshop bench. It proved so popular that we’ll be running it again in the autumn down at HQ. Drop us a line if you’re interested.
