SEEN is very excited about the Floom and Sunspel floral dye workshop at the London EDITION on Sunday 25th September 2016. Hosted by special guest Cara Marie Piazza of Calyx, who is a Natural Dye expert and Textile Designer based in New York City; she is committed to sustainable and ethical production, and creates unique textiles, using natural dye sources such as botanicals, plant matter, minerals and food wastes.

The masterclass will take place at the London EDITION hotel, located in central London’s Fitzrovia, where you’ll be surrounded by the extraordinary style that emanates from the integrity and character of such a historic building, blended with a simple, sophisticated design sensibility. You’ll learn how to use the ‘bundle dye method’, which will be demonstrated on one of Sunspel’s premium 100% long staple cotton T-shirts. Each guest will hand-dye their own, creating a truly unique piece of clothing.

Sunspel is known for making the finest quality luxury wardrobe staples, and has a long history of using natural plant dyes such as indigo or woad. Floom is a dynamic new online destination for beautifully curated flowers and plants. Both share a love for artisanal craft and natural materials and have come together through shared values of craftsmanship and quality.

What a great opportunity to participate in an exciting workshop in a dynamic social hub where you’ll be able to work, relax, socialise and learn about the art of floral bundle-dyeing with expert Cara Marie Piazza. Don’t miss it!
Sunday, 25th September 2016 from 14:00 to 18:00 (BST)

Sculpture in the City, Art for Everyone

SEEN thoroughly enjoyed a preview of the 18 new artworks around the financial district’s square mile. Set up by The City of London in 2010, this excellent initiative expands its footprint every year, improving the area and proving that when people are happy, they work better.

Alex Evans at the Foundry Gallery, Chelsea Quarter: LDF17

The astute reader will have noticed that SEEN loves art about London. There are many artists in this city who draw (pun intended) their inspiration from it, none more so than Alex Evans whose fractal renderings hint at the entropic nature of urban life and perhaps also our anxieties and isolation in the 21st century. His latest exhibition ‘Invisible Systems’ can be seen at the Foundry Gallery, tucked away off the King’s Road until 26th October.
