Our new HQ is within Bootstrap, their new 'Bootyard - think Shoreditch Boxpark, Pop Up Brixton. I got connected with Bootstrap Company, a community focused affordable workspace, when I joined their social enterprise this time last year. The past 12 months has been a huge step-up for Yemzi, with new international stockists, our first fashion show and several features online worldwide.
To give thanks to Bootstrap, Peabody, and the local community which supports my continuing growth I plan to run regular workshops from my new studio in the Bootyard! I recently held my first in Hackney for the young Threads girls at Peabody. This was a very exciting project as we made a print design for the US ambassador to the UK, had it digitally printed and the final product was a stunning bespoke waistcoat.
The workshop this weekend is a little less ambitious and open to all. Come down, get painting, sketching, make something Christmay to take home. Participants will be given a free lunch from Cally Munchy, arrive at 2.45 on Saturday or Sunday!
