Little Dalston Builders at Street Feast

A couple of weeks ago I was commissioned by Street Feast London to create and run some kids workshops over the summer.  

Street Feast have taken up residency in a derelict, roofless warehouse space on Dalston Lane in East London for 9 weeks.  It's an amazing venue which has been made even more amazing and welcoming with lots of fairy lights, colourful graffiti and of course the Street Food traders.
"Street Feast is London’s pioneering night market. Thousands of people gather each week to eat from London’s best street food traders, chefs and restaurants, and drink festival-style pint-sized cocktails, craft beer and great wine."

I will be representing A-side B-side Gallery at Street Feast every Saturday until 14th September, the kids workshops are called 'Little Dalston Builders'.

Together, the Little Dalston Builders will be constructing and creating their visions for the future of the Street Feast site.  If the derelict warehouse could be absolutely anything what would the kids want to build there, a fairground, an ice cream factory, a farm, an adventure playground?

There will be a range of activities and all sorts of materials for the Little Dalston Builders to use, the inventions and constructions will grow and develop as each week of the Streetfeast residency goes by.  It's all about imagining, constructing, building and creating, with lots of cardboard, gaffa tape, glue, paint, canvas and wood...
