Lambeth Open 2015

As mentioned previously, I’m taking part in Lambeth Open again this year, which takes place this weekend (3 and 4 October).

I’m teaming up with two fellow Makerhood members.

  • Gabriela Szulman creates wonderful collages, prints, dolls, jewellery and furniture, combining painting and decoupage (you may remember the fantastic shoe decoupage workshop of hers I attended). Gabriela is very kindly hosting for the weekend in her lovely new studio, and will be doing a decoupage demonstration on Sunday afternoon.
  • Robyn Parker of Archie Mac London is leading a crusade against beige, creating kaleidoscopic, playful textiles which she makes into bright, colourful home and fashion accessories. Robyn’s Chronicles of Brixton for the recent Brixton Design Trail featured items that people would save from a fire.

I will have my latest batch of upcycled indigo shibori scarves, natch, plus some examples of my latest felt work, like the seashells and eco-printed vessels.

Two doors down, printmaker Pauline Amphlett will be displaying etchings, aquatints, lino prints and collographs featuring London trees and stylised birds.

So do come along and see the lovely varied work on display!

Gabriela Szulman Open Studio is at 6 Empress Mews, Kenbury Street, London SE5 9BT. We will be open Saturday and Sunday 3 and 4 October, 10am-6pm.

Flextiles uses shibori, ecoprinting and felting to create original, one-off upcycled pieces. Extending the life of a garment by an extra nine months reduces its environmental impact by 20-30%.

  1. Hope you’re having a great weekend at the Open! Have I said lately how much I admire your felt vessels? Your latest work is just gorgeous. I love both the eco-dyed pieces, as well as the shells and their forms–wonderful stuff!
