Event description

Description

Would you like to assemble, finish and take home your very own piece of furniture? Then come to our workshops on Saturday 23rd September and join Aldworth James & Bond for a special Day of Making.

Our dedicated team of makers and technicians will get you started by CNC routing the pieces, and then over to you to assemble the stool / side table and give it a quick oil.

Like flat pack furniture, but with way more fun (and beers!).

Plus it’s free to attend. So whether you are complete carpentry newbie, passionate homeware lover or just fancy a fun day of making and to come and say hello— grab your ticket now, tickets are limited to only twenty.

Who are we?
Aldworth James & Bond is a group of designers, project managers, tradespeople and makers based in Deptford. Founded in 2008, our company is recognised as experts in joinery, metalwork, finishing and digital fabrication.
We're creative build specialists who love designing and building beautiful things.

Who is this event perfect for?
Anyone with an interest in making, carpentry, design and craft. No previous experience necessary.

What’s entailed?
On arrival you will be given a unique maker number which will correspond to your set of birch plywood pieces. Our CNC technicians will then cut the ply sheet, you collect the pieces and then start assembly! It will be a simple construction and our team of joiners will be on hand to help, should you need it. You can finish the stool with a layer of oil if you like, or take home to paint in your own colour choice. And at the end, you will be rewarded with a refreshing beer (or soft drink). It’s thirsty work!

Where is the event taking place?
At the Aldworth James & Bond workshops— just off Rolt Street in Deptford. Weather permitting, assembly will take place outdoors in our yard, or in one of our arches.

About the South East Makers Club—
Following on from the success of 2016, South East Makers Club returns for a second year. As part of the London Design Festival, it invites all design enthusiasts to head south and follow a trail through the creative streets and studios of South East London. The event takes place on the final weekend of The London Design Festival (Saturday 23rd — Sunday 24th September) and spans Deptford, Brockley, New Cross, Peckham and Nunhead. The South East Makers Club aims to shines a spotlight on the hidden creativity, skill, passion and talents that South East London has to offer.


FAQs


Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

For health & safety reasons, attendees must be over 18 years old to take part.

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

There is limited parking on Rolt Street but we would encourage you to cycle or walk here, so that you can check out other SEMC events taking part in Deptford and New Cross! Which are only a stones throw. For rail our nearest stations are Deptford, New Cross and Surrey Quays and local buses stop on nearby Evelyn Street.

Anything else I should know?

We'd recommend you wear something you don't mind getting a bit dusty or a splash of paint, and some sturdy shoes.
