Deptford Market Yard (up the ramp)
During July we spent a month at Cove Park, on the Rosneath Peninsula in Argyll and Bute.
Cove Park’s UK Craft Residency supports an established designer/ maker at a key stage in their career. It enabled us to undertake research, explore new ideas and make significant developments in our practice within the context of Cove Park’s international and cross-disciplinary programme.
We had an wonderful time making work, drawing, swimming and eating great food with some amazing people!
This year Custhom and Stoff Studios will be showing new collections as part of their independent show ‘Paper round”, housed in the beautiful Exhibit Gallery during Clerkenwell Design Week 2018 which is perfectly placed between Clerkenwell Green and the Barbican Centre.

We do not speak but confine ourselves briefly to the surface (a dramaturgy of interiority)
22 June 2016
An evening programme exploring interiority as a collective experience and the affective potential of the surface. A live event that builds on the format of a film screening to create an arrangement situated between the theatre and the exhibition through an interlacing of films, objects, movement, singing and speaking. Reflecting back on the work of Betty Woodman, this evening aims to think through feminised expectations and the possibility of an event as a decorative object.
This conglomeration of disparate voices seeks to bring into focus modes of address and subject matter such as the decorative, the sentimental, the silly, the private, the irrational, the trivial or the talkative and unfold the ways in which vulnerability, intimacy and unguarded emotion can act as biopolitical gestures that recuperate their historically diminished cultural value. A transgenerational dialogue creating possibilities for relating at a distance.
