BOOK >

How can we make in a way that is economical? What skills and resources do we have at our fingertips, and what possibilities are provided by working with what we already have to hand? Why does being resourceful matter in the long term? Join Sean Roy Parker for a discussion around these themes, and put what you’ve learnt into action with a practical introduction to pickling. We will collectively problem-solve and carve out new ways to navigate economy and autonomy. Please bring an empty jar to fill with sauerkraut!

Groundwerk is a monthly series of free practical workshops for artists and creatives wishing to gain the skills to support their practice.

This workshop is free to attend and open to all but booking is recommended, as spaces are limited.
