Farewell Faircharm

Looks like the final open studios at Faircharm on Deptford Creekside this weekend. Creekside Artists say 'Come and visit our humble home for the last time before the bulldozers move in! Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th June 2013 11am – 6pm'. Not sure when building work is due to start, but the Faircharm trading estate site is to be redeveloped shortly by Workspace plc, displacing around 130 art studios and local businesses. There will be 148 residential units, a mere 21 of them affordable (see Crosswhatfields? for details).

MAS Exhibition

Meanwhile at Number 82, Tanners Hill SE8 there's a 'one night pop up exhibition' on June 20th with people invited to submit work on paper and then exchange works with each other. Further details here: The MAS exhibition is intended to 'explore notions of value, ownership and exchange' in art and is part of the ongoing USED project focused on upcycling, swapping, and reclaiming textiles.

As well as the exhibition there will be a free screenprinting workshop.

Quite a depressing Faircharm experience this weekend - they seem to be going out with a whimper - but all the best to them in whatever home they all end up in next.
