We’re really excited to have Forget-me-knots hosting an extra special Macramé workshop at Bob’s Café in Muswell Hill.

Macramé is a form of textile making using knotting rather than weaving or knitting and is a really exciting and versatile craft to learn.

You will also be able to enjoy a delicious brunch dish and a hot drink while you knot, which are included in the ticket price of £30.

This workshop is suitable for absolute beginners, and will run for approximately three hours. For more details and to book your spot, contact us at hello@bobscafe.net

home: event [ Barbican exhibition ]

Explore the history behind the making of the conservatory and other green spaces at the Barbican at ‘Flying trees and sunken spaces’ exhibition that runs until March 20th.

They say;

Explore the history behind the creation of the open spaces, gardens, and conservatory that are found across the Barbican Estate and Arts Centre.

For over a decade (1940–1956), the devastated postwar site where this exhibition now stands was a wild landscape. Debate on the urban role of open space raged on, while weeds gently but effectively regenerated the City from its ashes. A monumental landscape emerged, combining low and high rise buildings and spaces, creating an enclosed, urban fabric within the City.

Flying Trees and Sunken Squares is the fifth of the changing foyer displays. It explores the history and design of the Barbican Estate and Arts Centre and is divided into three sections. A selection of books from founding CP&B partner Geoffrey Powell bring to light references from continental Europe and inspiration from the English garden. A selection of archival drawings and illustrations conveys the interweaving of artifice and nature. At its centre historical drawings of the Conservatory and newly commissioned botanical photography celebrate the glass and steel design of this hidden garden.
