Hackney WickED DIY Open Studios 2017

Bridget Riley Studios

Now in its 9th year, last weekends Hackney WickED DIY Open Studios showcased the talented residences of east London. Priding itself on being ‘the world’s most concentrated creative community’ The Wick and Fish Island had twenty seven studio locations and site specific installations open to the public, with a further 4 spread over the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. So what better way to get back in to blogging than to celebrate all that is unique, expressive and a visually exciting about London. Open Studios are a great way to find new artists/makers and visit an area you know nothing about. As far as Hackney Wick is concerned, I’d get in there quick, before the developers with big cranes and even bigger pots of money have a chance to destroy the area. Below: Hackney Wick No.s 5-11.
