They’re Nott hanging around

Cracking work by the Nottingham Scale Rule team for getting this beautiful structure up. It’s taken a lot of hard work to get to this point so well done to everyone involved for sticking the course. Particular thanks also to Hanson Plywood for supplying all the material.

This is rubbish!

It certainly is! and doesn’t it make mighty fine chairs?

Who’d have thought a load of old cardboard, bottles and sticky tape would create so much fun? (everyone I hear you answer).

Well done to everyone who helped out (Simona + Pauline + Veronica + Annabel) and to Open City for organising the Open House Families event and to all the kids who turned up and had so much fun making chairs. For more info check out the project page where you can scroll through for some home improvement inspiration.

More wood…

…than you can shake a stick at.

Well done and thanks to all the amazing volunteers and students who helped with the NGD 2019 build over the weekend! More wood, more cutting and more drilling than any project attempted so far. And the end result looks amazing so make sure you get down to CDW this week (21-23rd May) to see it. It won’t be around for long!

They’ll be Kewing round the block to see this

It’s back! by popular demand Past/Present/Future has found a new home and in Kew Gardens no less! After 8 months in storage the cobwebs have been blown off and it’s been reassembled for the Botanical garden’s Easter Festival.

Be sure to get yourselves down from the 6th April – 20th April to see the beauty (along with all the other cool stuff at Kew).

And thanks to Jack at Kew, the Pirates and and last years NGD team for their hard work in putting it back together.

A St John’s date

The London 2019 NGD workshops are over! It was beautiful, and we had some fantastic designs come through which we’ll share in due course.

In the meantime we should dwell on the fact that this year we’ll be in a new location – not in St James’ Church Gardens, but under St John’s Gate! Here are some students assessing the gate in all its majesty.
