Fabio Hendry

17th of September, 6.30-9pm

As a part of London Design Festival, STORE STORE presents a series of After Work Clubs. 

‘The Colour of Hair’ workshop is run by Fabio Hendry from Studio ilio. During the workshop participants will learn the basics of ‘The Colour of Hair’ printing technique, an innovative process that Fabio Hendry has developed alongside with Martijn Rigters. The participants will apply the printing technique, which transforms human hair into a printing medium, to various display plates and tiles made from aluminium. The printing process is based on the hair’s main protein, keratin, to be liquefied and carbonised by the use of heat. ‘The Colour of Hair’ project looks at using hair as an abundant, natural and sustainable material which can be locally sourced and printed.

Fabio Hendry is a designer whose work seeks to explore new potentials for overlooked matter, from architectural systems to materials. Hendry is interested in exploring disruptive approaches to industrial manufacturing, revealing alternative systems of production. He believes design and ecology should be a combined practice and that an emphasis on materiality enables us to rethink the building blocks of our environment. In 2015, he founded Studio ilio, a London based design agency fostering material innovation and experimental engineering. Alongside this, he is a visiting lecturer at the Design Department at Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts, and curator of Stalla Libra – Art Space, currently a public playspace in Sedrun, Switzerland.

The workshop is open to a maximum of 10 participants (age 16+) on a first come, first served basis. Attendance at the workshop costs £40 (£30 students) with all proceeds supporting the SCHOOL SCHOOL after school club for the local state school students.

Tessa Silva

16th of September, 6.30-9pm

As a part of London Design Festival, STORE STORE presents a series of After Work Clubs.  

This workshop will go through the process of extracting the protein from milk to form a natural alternative to plastic, in order to produce small handcrafted objects. The Protein project seeks to re-envision milk as a resourceful and valuable raw material, utilising waste milk from the dairy industry. As we know, the 20th century facilitated the worldwide manufacture of synthetic plastics, providing us with a cheap and easily accessible material. However, the economic benefits of designing with artificial plastics no longer weighs up against environmental drawbacks.

This natural milk plastic is composed of the proteins (otherwise known as casein) extracted from skimmed milk, which when processed appropriately forms a hard mass. Casein plastic was produced commercially during the early 1900’s in the UK, however faded from use due to the development of polymers derived from oil. In this workshop we will adapt the production techniques of the past to influence the future of making. Pigments will be used with the milk to produce a range of colours and effects, and hand shape small pieces with the clay-like material, which will harden overnight. The skimmed milk will be provided by Hook & Son organic farm in Sussex.

Tessa Silva-Dawson is a process-lead designer maker based in London, graduated from the MA Design Products course at the Royal College of Art. Projects are born from an ongoing fascination in our material culture, throughout the past, present, and into the future. The work is often intended as a catalyst for discourse – shifting perceptions of the material world and stimulating the creative exploration of the weird and wonderful resources available. Her ongoing project, Protein, is an investigation into the use of milk proteins as a natural material for the handcrafted production of objects.

This workshop is open to a maximum of 10 participants (age 12+). Attendance at the workshop costs £40 (£30 students) with all proceeds supporting the SCHOOL SCHOOL after school club for the local state school students.

Marco Campardo
Lorenzo Mason

14th of September, 2-6pm

The workshop, 10 elastic variations for relatively fragile shapes, led by Marco Campardo and Lorenzo Mason, founders of the design studio M-L-XL, consists in the realisation of a series of edible and temporary objects, ‘amorphous’ solids, obtained through the solidification (without crystallisation) of a liquid. From the creation of an elastic latex mould to the fusion of glass-like material, participants will have the chance to develop a series of relatively fragile yet flexible objects to life.

M–L–XL (Medium, Large, Extralarge) is a design studio that works across different disciplines, including furniture design, installations, graphic design, type design and publishing. The studio, with offices in Venice and London, was founded by Marco Campardo and Lorenzo Mason, and focuses on research, experimenting with languages, techniques and materials. In recent years, Marco and Lorenzo have given life to several acclaimed projects, including the Breakfast Pavilion (2017), an exhibition curated at the Venice Art Biennale, appreciated by the international press specializing in the design and art; “Heavy Formal Exercise” installation (2017) in the Turbine Hall of the Tate Modern; as well as participated in and shaped numerous international exhibitions, such as The House Electric (2018) during the Venice Architecture Biennale, Plastic Scene (2018), Ready Made Go 4 at Ace Hotel London (2018) and Trans–Form at Mint Shop.

This workshop is open to a maximum of 10 participants (age 18+). Attendance at the workshop costs £40 (£30 students) with all proceeds supporting the SCHOOL SCHOOL after school club for the local state school students.

Lola Lely

18th of August, 2-6pm

Learn the ancient technique of Shibori Indigo dyeing with designer Lola Lely in this half-day workshop.

Originating in Japan in the 8th century, Shibori indigo dyeing uses dye-resist techniques and folding to create patterned textiles. The special characteristic of Shibori resist is a soft- or blurry-edged pattern. The effect is quite different from the sharp-edged resist obtained with stencil, paste and wax. With Shibori the dyer works in concert with the materials, not in an effort to overcome their limitations, but to allow them full expression. In this hands-on workshop, participants will have the opportunity to learn this ancient technique to dye their own bundle of fabrics.

Lola Lely is an artist, designer and maker based in Walthamstow, East London. Born in Vietnam, Lola grew up and studied in the UK. She holds a Masters in Design Products from the RCA. In 2012 she founded her own mutli-disciplinary art practice, Lola Lely Studio. Over the last year, Lola developed a deep interest in traditional indigo dyeing techniques, Shibori in particular. To introduce and communicate her passion for these practices to others, she designed this workshop, which she has previously run in the UK and in Morocco.

The workshop is open to a maximum of 10 participants (age 8+) on a first come, first served basis. Attendance at the workshop costs £40 (£30 students) with all proceeds supporting the SCHOOL SCHOOL after school club for the local state school students.

STORE Summer Schools are collaborative two-week courses in architecture, art and design. Each year, the programme brings students together to design and construct ambitious and experimental design and construction projects, culminating in large-scale installations and inspiring public events.

Now in its seventh year, the Warsaw Summer School will team up with the Osiedle Jazdow community and U-Jazdowski Castle Centre for Contemporary Art.

The Osiedle Jazdow community is a dynamic local collective based in a colony of twenty-seven wooden huts which were built in 1945 to provide temporary housing for those responsible for rebuilding the city. Having fulfilled their temporary purpose, the huts themselves have now become an integral part of the fabric of Warsaw and a symbol of urban renewal.

During the duration of the course, The Warsaw Sumer School will behave as a temporary extension of the Osiedle Jazdow community. This will involve eating together, watching film screenings and attending public lectures, integrating with and learning from local artists and craftspeople and working collaboratively to design and build a exciting new addition to the historic Jazdow colony.

Our summer schools aim to engage both participants and the wider public in exciting and innovative ways. Over the past seven years, our students have built a rooftop pleasure garden, built and choreographed an open air stage, and transformed a public square into a living room for a night.

Our summer schools are each led by experienced architects, artists and designers teaching at leading universities. The breadth of expertise they provide allows us to offer a programme which considers architecture in terms of urbanism, performance and craft while giving students the chance to test their ideas in the public realm.

As part of a diverse, energetic and creative group, students are guided by our tutors through hands-on, design processes driven by physical prototyping and testing. They gain experience in effective collaboration while also getting the chance to develop their confidence and leadership skills. Regular design critiques, photography and portfolio tutorials will provide valuable opportunities for critical reflection on their work, both as a team and as individuals.

Who can apply

This course is open to students between the ages of 15-25 with varying levels of experience. It will be of particular benefit to students interested in studying architecture, design or art at university level but also those currently enrolled in further education. Equally the course will provide an introduction to ambitious beginners with no design background.

STORE’s ethos of design through making ensures accessibility to those without extensive experience. Each and every student will be challenged imaginatively and creatively by set themes and by the scale of activities undertaken.

Further Info

Accommodation is not included in the course fees. However, we would be very happy to recommend somewhere suitable to stay for all students who are not based in Warsaw.

SWIMMERS

Swimmers is a cross disciplinary – though primarily literary – project consisting of regular events and a series of print pamphlets, combining contemporary literature and original artwork. The series was founded by Store associates in 2014 and has always constituted a conversation between writing and visual practice, learning important lessons in hybridity, dynamism and experimentation from visual art institutions and practitioners. Seeking to hold attention in relation to the tactile and surprising object, the pamphlet series has been an exploration in value, exchange and community.

In its original iteration, Swimmers presented a series of events based on ‘City Narratives’ and included poetry readings, talks, performance, and film screenings. In 2016, designer/artist Kevin Green and writer/editor Catherine Hamilton reconceived Swimmers as a series of limited run pamphlets and events, bringing together their respective disciplines and drawing on relationships built through Store’s previous activities and the original Swimmers series. Past and current editors include:

Declan Ryan, Eleanor Griffiths, Maria Dimitrova, Ralf Webb, and Will Harris.
