Making Uncovered, the popular festival of art, craft and design, is back for a second year, showcasing the best of south London’s creative talent.
Last year’s debut Making Uncovered attracted over 700 visitors, offering them the chance to watch local artists and makers in action, learn some new skills and share in the joy of making.
This year, the event returns in a new venue, the wonderful Six Brixton, a vibrant community venue in the heart of Lambeth. Once again, it promises to serve up a feast of fascinating arts and crafts, with ceramics, woodwork, textiles, drawing, calligraphy and much more on show.
Making Uncovered 2014 will be the opening event of the London Design Festival’s Brixton design district programme. It’s the first year that Brixton has showcased its design culture as part of London’s biggest design festival of the year.
“Last year Making Uncovered was an astounding success and attracted hundreds of visitors,” said Kristina Glushkova, co-founder of Lambeth-based artists’ collective Makerhood, which is organising the event.
“This year we’ve got some really interesting and unusual artists taking part, who will be doing things you don’t get to see every day. We’re really proud to be bringing these different crafts together under one roof to kick off Brixton’s design festival celebrations. It will be a very special occasion.”
Entry is free, and demonstrations of 12 different arts and crafts will run all day. Those wanting to have a go can take part in a range of intriguing workshops in ceramics, drawing, weaving, jewellery making, upholstery and more. Some of these will be first come, first served on the day, others are bookable on Makherhood’s Eventbrite page. Makers will also be selling one-off pieces.
In the evening, the festivities will carry on, with food and drink, and an exciting line up of live music and performance.
To book a free ticket or to take part in hands-on workshops, visit the Making Uncovered Eventbrite page at http://makinguncovered.eventbrite.co.uk/
The event is a result of collective work of many local makers, volunteers and partners. It is supported by Brixton’s popular Diverse gift shop and Europe’s leading retail packaging company WBC, based in Herne Hill.
