Rock Paper Scissors Artist Collective – version 2

I’ve mentioned that I am part of the Rock Paper Scissors group of Artist and Handmade crafters who are members of The Open Works and Makerhood Lambeth.

In November 2014 we started at L’Arche (next to St Luke’s Church in West Norwood) with 20 members selling their designs, artwork and craft items which went rather well.

This will continue in February with a few new people but the project has expanded and now there is a version 2!

RPS 2 is the James Wilson Cafe (name subject to change):

RunnyCustard: Rock Paper Scissors 2 at James Wilson Cafe Tulse Hill and RPS 2 (SE27) at James Wilson Cafe, Tulse Hill, London
RPS 2 (SE27) at James Wilson Cafe, Tulse Hill, London
There is a plan to rename the cafe (public vote or competition?) and redecorate as it still looks like a Letting Agents!
It is a community space for workshops, meetings, freelancers, lone home workers and more… so including local makers and artists helps the community support each other. (free Wifi!)

Some Suggestions made so far are:

  • Creative workshops
  • Exhibition
  • Event music etc
  • Saturday makers market
  • Holistic therapies

The Window Display in the window.
The makers are also helping with the workshops so go check out The Open Works website to find out more.  http://www.theopenworks.org/rock-paper-scissors
RPS 2 (SE27) at James Wilson Cafe, Tulse Hill, London

The Cafe also has a website: http://www.jameswilsoncoffee.co.uk/

Here’s a few more images – more handmade/artwork is to be added soon and an official ‘launch’ in a few weeks time – I will update with more information when I can! click on the slideshow to see them on my main website.

I featured my prints which you can find in L’Arche tomorrow and next week Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday will be the last day… I also sell at Diverse Gifts, Coldhabour Lane, Brixton but, I also made some toys… my current favourite are the ‘Cat’s in Pants’…

two characters I made and one sold straight away - Bob (the dark version) is loved by many yet no home for him yet!
