About The Event
Join us for a very special Saturday night when you will make treasure. On offer is anything from our 'Ready-mades range' so amazing sculptural lampshades, beautiful wooden vases, small useful containers or you could just go for pure sculpture. When you arrive we give you a mini-masterclass in steam-bending and you can choose to follow one of our designs or make your own unique creation to wow your friends. This is a transformative few hours, the perfect end to a Saturday or an amazing beginning to a night in the city!
Please note: We will help you design your own creation and also all items from the 'Ready-Mades' section can be recreated in a maker session, except the Curlyshade which requires two maker sessions due to it's complexity.
Why do a Maker Session?
Luxury goods exist to make us happier, improve our lives, and by investing alittle of your own time in the creation of these exclusive Charlie Whinney Studio/you collaborations 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, you creation will embody a time and memory and will transcend fashion.
'Maker Sessions’ are a concept and artwork by Charlie Whinney, and by taking part you will be collaboration in his practice which include over 100 projects and installaitions around the world including large scale permanent installations in cities including notable works in China, Japan, Singapore, Europe and USA. Charlie returns to where he started working on sustainable product design. These products are a 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.
