The Makers of Stuff Squad (MOSS) and Turf Projects have been working together since June 2014 to create work inspired by their lives in Croydon.
MOSS are a collective of learning disabled adult artists from in and around the borough of Croydon. Turf facilitates space for MOSS to hold regular workshops for the artists on Friday afternoons where they are supported in their own artistic practices and work on collaborative projects. MOSS also have a studio at Turf, where MOSS artists often work on their individual projects and commissions.
Previous collective projects have included screen printing their own designs onto bags, indigo dyeing and embroidery inspired by the textile industries of the River Wandle, still life drawing from the Museum of Croydon’s Riesco Gallery, creating their own 3D model crazy golf course, producing a comic book inspired by Croydon Airport, recording a visual arts radio show for Soho Radio and creating a music inspired mural for Club Soda. The collective work with many tools, processes and materials; from clay to photography, painting and collage, drawing and printmaking, making DIY animations including flipbooks, zoeotropes and gifs….and more….
MOSS have shown their work at Stanley Arts, Matthew’s Yard, The Croydon Clocktower, The National Trust’s Morden Hall Park, Soho Radio, the Wandle Industrial Museum and of course, here at Turf.
