Friday Frolics

Forget going clubbing on a Friday night (totally overated, best nights are Sunday – Thursday anyway). It was down to the V&A for their monthly Friday late event. The theme was Home sweet home with a range of events around the love of all things homely. Think 1950s nostalgie, Bree from Desperate housewives, Martha Stewart but all with an Arty twist of course.

There were a range of lectures, films, installations, workshops, murder mystery games…and a really cool rockabilly Djette duo: Teo (sorry no photo but equally cool Graphic Designer by day) & Fred who were wearing some very cool homemade sponge hats (pictured Fred amazing Prop & accesories designer by day).

I didn’t manage to do everything (click here for the whole programme) but I did make a postcard at the postcard home workshop organised by Graham Rawle:

I nipped by Arash & Kelly’s Illuminati workshop who got everyone making there own paper lampshades. Unfortunately all the workshops were booked up but I did get to take my own D.I.Y. lampshade kit for home (stay tuned for the results).

There was a culinary performance by L.A. Chef Roberto Cortez who collaborated with several designers to enhance the dining experience. A bit like Paris Chefs at Maison & Objet.

After all that homely fun it was off for something a little more regular: a drink in Old street. Oh man and what a schlepp! Something Paris has over London. It doesn’t take half a day to get from one side to another. A little drink at the Dragon bar and it was back to the other side of town to….bed. Ahhhhh yes,  a girl has to have her beauty sleep 🙂
