Join us from 2-5pm on the 15th of April 2023 to celebrate the Public Showcase of Turf’s ‘MakeRoom’ Project, showcasing maker facilities across Turf, and the items and ideas formed in these workshops! From January to April Turf has been transformed into a maker space for Croydon locals to try out new crafts, activities and techniques. We’ll also be launching a new limited edition by Resolve Collective and handmade tables by Rebecca Sainsot-Reynolds in collaboration with Turf Studio Artists. From 3-5pm the Club Soda DJ’s will perform one of their infamous DJ sets at Turf on the Ground Floor.
‘MakeRoom’ turns Turf Projects into a collective workshop of endless making possibilities. MakeRoom uses workshops, drop-in sessions, and open-access facilities to turn Turf into a shared exploratory studio. A cross between maker space, resource library, online video tutorial, swap shop & scrap store with materials, equipment & knowledge shared. Croydon residents and visitors from further afield have been invited to play, potter & ponder. Together we’ll experiment, share skills, learn & expand processes, and trial open-access facilities to explore an unmet demand in the borough.
Turf has invited Resolve Collective, Ama Dodzro, Print Collective, Solo Wood Recycling, Fashion Meets Music, Heather Lawrence, Daisy Young, Rebecca Sainsot-Reynolds and Rosie Crane Eckmire to set up and/or run various facilities and workshops across Turf. Facilities in ceramics, wood working, furniture building, textiles, photography, and printing; will be available.
