A fun packed family day out with a tour of the Forest of Fabrication exhibition at 11.00am, a woodcut printing workshop starting at 1.00pm, and Store Street Spring Market all day long.
Forest of Fabrication exhibition tour
dRMM Director Jonas Lencer gave a talk focused on the studio’s approach to using the minimum amount of material to achieve maximum effect. Projects featured included dRMM’s Stirling Prize-winning project, Hasting Pier, and proposal to build a 36-storey interlocking CLT tower.
Woodcut printing workshop
Artist and printmaker Alex Booker provided an exciting day of woodcut printing to coincide with Forest of Fabrication - dRMM: pioneers of timber architecture. In response to this brilliant show, we made our own timber inspired prints. Alex taught this ancient medium using Japanese Shina blocks and traditional wood cutting tools.
