Partners: Ma-tt-er

Wooden Matters was a week of curated public events and workshops for London Design Festival in collaboration with materials research practice Ma-tt-er  .It brought together a fantastic mix of designers and researchers working with wood. We kicked off with talks by author of The Man Who Made Things Out of TreesRob Penn,  hearing all about his journey to create as many objects as possible from a single ash tree.

There were workshops exploring the process of kerfing with Lola Lely, natural wood dyeing with indigo thanks to textile designer Hazel Stark, and innovative joinery using waste plastics from Micaella Pedros.
