About The Event
Join us for a very special Sunday when you will make treasure. On offer in this session is the iconic ‘CurlyShade Green’ lampshade, 'Algea Light', ‘Unfired Vase’ and ‘Unfired Bowl’. Arrive find your place with your name card and everything you need ready to go! Get a drink and enjoy bending the wood and getting your parts ready under our expert tutorage and maybe even put your own twist on the design if wanted. Halfway through your maker session we will have a break when you will watch a short film and/or see short demonstration relating to the work you are making. When you leave the work will be perfect and finished with a lovely smelling eco-friendly oil finish. Put it in box and take it home!
Why do a Maker Session?
Luxury goods exist to make us happier, improve our lives, and by investing a little of your own time in the creation of these exclusive Charlie Whinney Studio artefacts we believe you get the maximum benefits. Be it something for your home or a present for a loved one, when you have seen something born under your own hands and it is perfect, then it instantly becomes an heirloom; treasures which will only improve with age and transcends fashion.
The collection of ‘Maker Sessions’ products draw on 15 years of Charlie’s practice creating over 100 design and fine art projects around the world including large scale permanent installations in cities including Tokyo, Singapore, London and Washington DC. Charlie returns to where he started working on sustainable product design. These products are our first tiny step in the right direction in terms of how our ‘luxury needs’ should be fulfilled in the future, in the context of our changing world and climate.
Workshop cancellations by you
We try our best to price our workshops as fairly as possible and offer good value for money. We therefore have to have a clear cancellation policy to ensure that we cover our costs and the ongoing viability of the workshop.
We urge you to carefully check your diary to ensure that you are available to attend any workshops you are booking with us.
If circumstances change, or something pops up and you are unable to attend, unfortunately all our workshops and classes are non-refundable.
If you give more than 14 days notice to cancel a place on a workshop your options are as follows:
• We will be happy to transfer you to another workshop, space permitting.
• If there are no suitable future dates for you to transfer to we can provide a voucher to be used for a future workshop booking.
• You can of course send someone in your place at any time, but please note that this is your responsibility to find a replacement person and you must let us know in advance who will be attending.
If you give less than 14 days notice to cancel a place on a workshop then your options are as follows:
• If you would like to transfer, we can only transfer you to a future workshop if your place is re-sold.
We will do our best to fill the place within this time. Please be aware that in our experience it can be difficult to fill places on workshops at short notice.
