Blackhorse Workshop

Blackhorse WorkshopA public place for making, mending and learning

Blackhorse Workshop is a public place for making, mending and learning. In the spirit of the public library, the workshop, with on-site assistance, lends resources such as wood and metal working equipment, offers space for assembly and construction and is a social space open to all. It is a place for learning through doing, where it’s possible to build anything from window boxes to carnival floats, repair a chair or fix a bike.

Located in an area rich with Arts & Crafts and manufacturing heritage, Blackhorse Workshop aims to become a new kind of public building that re-imagines the role of production in the city, providing a social working environment with an emphasis on collaboration and dialogue between makers.

The workshop offers wood and metal working equipment, shared workspace for both professional and occasional users, and a regular programme of classes and activities aiming to support and disseminate the practice and culture of making.

Blackhorse Workshop is supported by the Mayor of London’s Outer London Fund and the London Borough of Waltham Forest with funding from Create London, Legacy Trust UK and Arts Council England. It has been developed by the architecture and design practice Assemble, in collaboration with local artists, businesses and community organisations. The workshop will be run by an independent, not-for-profit organisation, which will be set up for the purpose of running and managing the workshop with the support of a board of trustees.

Assemble is a collaborative practice of Artists, Designers and makers of Architecture based in London. Blackhorse Workshop follows Create London’s hugely successful commission with Assemble in 2011: Folly for a Flyover.
