Jack will talk about his concrete designs and the vagaries, complexities and excitements of working with concrete, a material that is cold, industrial and practical but also buttery soft and in the right hands (Jack's!) extremely beautiful.

PLUS, you will have the chance to get your hands (only a little bit) dirty when you mix and pour (using one of Havelock Studio's molds) a concrete piece of your own to take-away.

Jack established Havelock Studio after graduating as an architect in 2013. He has applied the rigour of architecture and his own unrelenting eye for considered design to the pieces he makes. Using a material that is widely considered to be 'brutal' Jack works to ensure that every element of every object is scrutinised, purposeful and aesthetically perfect.

Tickets are £8 and include drinks, posh crisps and the chance to hand-mix and pour a concrete object to take away.
