Blackhorse Workshops latest public making event - Plaster Works, Blackhorse Workshop CIC


This half term Blackhorse Workshop are launching our latest off-site project in collaboration with sustainable design studio Good Waste.

PLASTER WORKS - CHINGFORD is an innovative public making experience which highlights the hidden potential of building waste material, by showcasing the design potential of recycled plasterboard. 

Coinciding with the UN Climate Change Conference (COP26), Plaster Works challenges us to re-think the materials that surround us every day and see value where others see waste. 

We'll be hosting fun hands-on activities for adults and children to crush, mix and create their own unique material to be moulded into a decorative bowl, gaining an insight into the power of transforming mundane waste.

You'll have a go making your own decorative bowl inspired by the Italian Scagliola technique at the Plaster Works site, a renovated disused high-street shop transformed by our group of Young Creatives with Good Waste.

Tickets are £5 per person and you can get them here.

PLASTER WORKS: 23rd OCTOBER - 14th NOVEMBER at 228 Chingford Mount Road, London, E4 8JL
