Yesenia Thibault-Picazo

Saturday the 14th of December, 2-6pm

Join us for a candle making masterclass at STORE STORE. Designers Lola Lely and Yesenia Thibault-Picazo will introduce you to the fascinating craft of traditional candle making, demonstrating how to use materials and equipment to make high quality beeswax candles using the traditional ‘wax dipping’ method. All abilities are welcome, and you’ll leave the workshop with a set of two dipped candles, one hand-twisted candle and six birthday candles for your home or to give to a loved one-all wrapped and stamped with a bespoke wax seal.

Born in Hanoi, Lola grew up in London and was curious from an early age about how objects are made. Drawing, making and the connections between materials, processes and makers are all central to her practice. Yesenia is a musician alongside her design work and explores the narrative potential of materials through collaborations with experts in the fields of geology, anthropology and craft. She defines herself as a ‘material teller’ and uses design as a means to engage with diverse audiences on contemporary ecological challenges.

Celia Pym

Saturday the 16th of November, 2-6pm

Mending is a workshop that explores textile repair on knitted and wool textiles, how you do it and why you do it. It considers the tenderness and care of mending. The aim of the workshop is to practice mending techniques on knit. You will learn about artists working with repair. You will learn and develop skills in woven and fake ‘knitted’ darning. There will also be an opportunity to work on repairing any sweaters and socks and wool accessories, that you own and that have holes. Please bring along any damaged wool and knitted items that you would like to discuss repair options for. Darning materials will be provided. No previous darning, knitting, needle based experience is necessary.

Celia Pym is an artist living and working in London most recently her work has been included in exhibitions Woman’s Hour Craft Prize, V&A Museum and Loewe Craft Prize, COAM, Madrid and 21_21, Tokyo. Celia Pym has been exploring mending since 2007 with extensive experience of small everyday holes, at heels, elbows, in pockets as well as working on more dramatic damage, from water damage, animal nesting and moths issues. Celia’s interests are around the evidence of damage – through repair you look closely at where garments and cloth have got worn down and thin. In clothing this wearing is often to do with use and how the body moves. Celia says “she likes that darning is often small acts of care and paying attention to where things fray and wear out.”

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 local state school students.

Tutors:
Midushi Kochhar

Saturday the 5th of October, 2-6pm

Eggshell Ceramic Workshop by Midushi Kochhar, will concentrate on a conscious material driven approach to forming objects out of food waste. Traditional resources are finite and expensive but waste is abundant and cheap. By retrieving some of these resources from the disposal stream and reimagining them in new contexts, we can add value to them; spread awareness and finally, revise the common perception about discarded materials. Learn how to use calcareous food waste, eggshells to make simple household objects such as coasters or a key tray. “Eggware” as coined by the tutor is a new technique, similar to ceramic making, developed by combining processed eggshells and a bio binder. Eggshells will be provided by various breakfast cafes in King’s Cross and through a creative, hands- on method we would make compostable Eggware objects from scratch.

Midushi Kochhar is London-based designer and material researcher from India who recently graduated in M.A. Industrial Design from Central St. Martins. With the mindset of solving problems by keeping the material first, she has created some radically new, aesthetic and useful products. Scientific process and an underlying theme of green design drive her creativity and her latest projects are being exhibited during the London Design Festival 2019 at the V&A Museum and Open Cell. She has been developing innovative ways of making eco materials and during the workshop. Midushi will also be sharing some of her original, DIY recipes with the participants.

The workshop is open to a maximum of 10 participants (age 15+) on a first come, first served basis. Attendance at the workshop costs £40 (£30 students) with all proceeds supporting STORE’s After school club for local state school students.

NEWS

ABOUT

STORE is a London-based association of artists, architects and designers composed of three core elements: an educational programme of art and architecture courses, wide-ranging public events and exhibitions, and a socially engaged design practice.

Operating from spaces across London, STORE aims to facilitate and drive local change within the urban environment. Since its formation in 2011, a group has developed to form an association whose output and ethos reflects the values and talents of its members. In this time, STORE has occupied a variety of spaces, each of which has formed a nexus for projects and events beneficial to the local community.

Having recently consolidated our values and objectives by gaining the status of a Community Interest Company, STORE is a vehicle through which its members can apply their creative energy to projects that engage directly with the socio-economic challenges of the 21st century.

SUMMER SCHOOLS

STORE Summer Schools are collaborative design and construction projects which engage actively with the dynamics of lively urban sites. Since 2011, we have been working with our students to test ideas through drawing, modelling, physical prototyping and performance before creating ambitious public installations and events. Our international programme has included schools in London, Warsaw, Hong Kong and Athens, each embedded in a local creative community.

ONE DAY WORKSHOPS

In a rolling series of secondary school workshops, STORE works to increase the accessibility of fine art, architecture and other creative disciplines. Our pioneering model facilitates the sharing of skills and knowledge between experienced practitioners and aspiring students. Each workshop focuses on a specialised technique or craft, allowing students to achieve exciting outcomes in just one day. As well as building their portfolios, participants have the chance to learn about paths to creative careers from the experiences of postgraduate students and professionals.

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.
