Out and About in Shoreditch: Why do people make Shoreditch their home?
10.45am – 1.45pm Saturday 13 February, 2016 Geffrye Museum 136 Kingsland Road, London E2 8EA
Come and explore the creative and social aspirations that make this part of London such a dynamic hub. Join Andrew Stuck of Rethinking Cities' Museum of Walking and Martin Fidler from Ruskin Walks in an introductory workshop followed by a wander through hidden streets and alleyways.
This event will involve using basic skills to assemble our experimental travelogues to record both contemporary and historical aspects of this intriguing area. You will make and keep a journal, sketchbook, travel diary or zine!
We look forward to you joining us in this three hour event from the workshop in the Geffrye Museum to the end of our journey in the heart of Shoreditch.
The cost is £20.00 and £10.00 for students. Please meet at 10.45am in the entrance to the museum. Bring a friend and you each receive a 10% discount as a cash refund on the day. Book now
John Ruskin was a prolific diarist and keeper of travelogue journals, many of which were the basis for print books. Many say he was the father of cultural tourism as his travelogues and writings, encouraged others to visit and explore the many places he visited. Martin and Andrew frequently make their own handmade notebooks and sketchbooks, but this workshop is going to be even more hands-on and experimental and every participant will get the chance to make their own journal as a keepsake.
