The Soothing Presence of Strangers

Date/time
30th September 2019 - 31st December 2019, All Day

Location


The Soothing Presence of Strangers is an audio meditation on loneliness, usefulness, and the place a bus route can have in our lives.

Rhiannon Armstrong has had a soft spot for local buses since she was a child crossing the city on her way home from school, and Robert – the driver of the number 66 – decided to befriend her.

This year she spent two weeks hanging out on local buses in Walthamstow (where she lived and worked for six years). The resulting work is an audio tour incorporating field recordings, music and narrative.

The Soothing Presence of Strangers is an audio experience designed for people to listen to whilst riding a bus. The piece is 40 minutes long and you are free to choose any bus route: we recommend starting at Walthamstow Bus Station. A guide will talk you through your options and you will be able to pause half way through to get off of the bus and return the way you came.

Learn to sew with zips!

Date/time
8th November 2019, 10:00am

Location
Cheekyhandmades
13 Thorpe Crescent
E17 5BY

The ideal class to take after the absolute beginners class.

You will learn all about zips, the anatomy of them, the tools you need to put them in, the different kinds of zips you can buy. You will practice inserting them and then you will design and make a zippy pouch. You can make your pouch as big or small as you want and can use it for example as a small purse, a make up bag or a pencil case.

I will supply the fabric, the zips and everything else you may need. You will go home with a cool and useful project and a handy new skill. You know how many people are petrified of putting in zips? Even experienced seamstresses? Well, you will not be one of them!

Please bring a packed lunch.

All materials and machines included. You will also get a copy of my sewing handbook to take home (RRP£15) so you won’t have to take notes!

The Soothing Presence of Strangers

Date/time
30th September 2019 - 31st December 2019, All Day

Location


The Soothing Presence of Strangers is an audio meditation on loneliness, usefulness, and the place a bus route can have in our lives.

Rhiannon Armstrong has had a soft spot for local buses since she was a child crossing the city on her way home from school, and Robert – the driver of the number 66 – decided to befriend her.

This year she spent two weeks hanging out on local buses in Walthamstow (where she lived and worked for six years). The resulting work is an audio tour incorporating field recordings, music and narrative.

The Soothing Presence of Strangers is an audio experience designed for people to listen to whilst riding a bus. The piece is 40 minutes long and you are free to choose any bus route: we recommend starting at Walthamstow Bus Station. A guide will talk you through your options and you will be able to pause half way through to get off of the bus and return the way you came.

The ideal class to take after the absolute beginners class.

You will practice inserting them and then you will design and make a zippy pouch. You can make your pouch as big or small as you want and can use it for example as a small purse, a make up bag or a pencil case.

I will supply the fabric, the zips and everything else you may need. You will go home with a cool and useful project and a handy new skill. You know how many people are petrified of putting in zips? Even experienced seamstresses? Well, you will not be one of them!

Please bring a packed lunch.
