No one would ever compare a windy day by the Thames to a day at the seaside, so the creative design studio We Are Laura are bringing the sea to us. From today (October 14), you’ll be welcomed into a shipping container in Boxpark to browse the nautical prints, cards and curiosities on sale (including books on behalf of Oxfam Ealing Bookshop) until October 20. You can also get involved in the different maritime workshops running every day, like a little lunchtime badge-making session or learning how to build a paper circuit with electrical components and conductive ink. All the creations from the week will be brought together on Friday afternoon (Oct 18) when the two lovely Lauras will be constructing a live 24-hour installation from all your hard work. The installation launch party is on Thursday night, if you fancy knocking back a rum cocktail or two and listening to some enchanting sea shanties.
