Mark Eley and Wakako Kishimoto are often referred to as 'the patron saints of print' for their bold, playful designs. Based in Brixton for 30 years, the couple have collaborated with everyone from Alexander McQueen and Marc Jacobs to BMW and Eastpak, as well as selling their own line in clothes. They have been one of the prime movers behind the development of Brixton Design Trail in the past couple of years, creating the memorable 'Flash carpet' outside the tube station and the Flash crossings at the junction of Atlantic Road and Coldharbour Lane.
At our Makers' Club meeting, Eley Kishimoto will be talking about how they built up their Brixton-based practice, printing all their fabric by hand in their Brixton studio, while developing industrial design collaborations and also working with individual artists and galleries.
If you're interested in learning how to scale up and innovate without losing your artistic integrity, this is one meeting you mustn't miss!
Entry is free to Makerhood Makers' Club members and £5 + booking fee to non-members. Please book via Eventbrite.
