Making Design

From trimmers, turners, gilders and framers, the borough of Hackney has a rich connection to the crafts and industry of the timber trade. For two hundred years, in workshops across the borough; furniture, musical instruments and architectural joinery has been crafted for customers far and wide.

Design studio Pearson Lloyd, who have worked in the area for 23 years, is completing the repurposing of a series of Hackney workshops that once housed the makers of hats, tools, dolls and chairs into their new studio, workshop, archive and gallery.

In celebration, Yorkton Workshops is being opened to visitors, where a temporary exhibition of Pearson Lloyd’s archive and design process will sit alongside a glimpse into the history of the building itself and its inhabitants.

Making Design forms part of Open House, London Design Festival and Shoreditch Design Triangle and is open from 10 am – 5 pm on September 18th, 19th, 20th 2020.
