Workshop Birmingham

July 29th, 2018

We are now listed with this really useful online resource

Workshop birmingham 

Workshop birmingham are building a free, online directory of manufacturers, material suppliers and fabricators in and around Birmingham. They are working in partnership with Make Works who have spent the last few years finding factories and building an amazing online resource for designers and makers in Scotland. They are the first Make Works region and hope to soon be joined by others from across the UK and beyond.

 

here’s more about make works

“We are factory finders, on a mission to make local manufacturing openly accessible. Our platform allows designers and makers* to find manufacturers, material suppliers and workshop facilities in their local area. Something of an open library for finding production. “

LUCY McLAUCHLAN PRINT LAUNCH

May 13th, 2018

 

Please join us as we show off our completed new gallery space, Studio 4 gallery with an exclusive print launch by renowned artist Lucy McLauchlan. The event will be at The Framers at the Custard Factory on the 31st May from 6-9pm, all welcome.

 

 

British born Lucy McLauchlan’s large-scale monochromatic paintings have covered multi-story buildings across Europe, gigantic billboards in China, windows in Japan, huts in The Gambia, Italian water towers, Norwegian lighthouse, Detroit car parks and abandoned NYC subway tunnels.

Implicit within her work is a deep respect for nature as she draws inspiration from her immediate environment; allowing it to inform and direct what is an intuitive and explorative process.
