5 hour workshop
Visual artist Chrissie Nicholls will be leading a walking workshop encouraging people to look-up, take notice and appreciate the detail in the neighbourhood as she leads people through the streets of Deptford taking in the sites on her ‘Mapping Deptford’ walking tour.
You don’t need to be be able to draw, you only need to be curious! Each person will make a unique-to-you Turkish-fold map book.
This workshop is part of the programme put on by The South East Makers Club, a celebration of South East London’s creative talent. Held during the first weekend of London Design Festival, this year's South East Makers Club will take place on 14 —16 September 2018 at Deptford Market Yard.
