On Saturday 20th May, East London arts educational charity Bow Arts will host an Open Studios event at the Pennington Street Warehouse in Wapping. The event will see visitors invited to explore local artists' workspaces, enjoy film screenings and artist-led workshops, view exhibitions and purchase original artworks.
Bow Arts opened a series of affordable artist studios at the Pennington Street Warehouse in summer 2015, which now houses more than 100 artists, designers and makers.
The Pennington Street Warehouse was once used to store valuable cargo such as rum, silk and perfume imported in to London and held in bond. As part of the transformation of the new London Dock development, it will be brought to life with an eclectic mix of retail, restaurants, galleries and offices. Architecture practice JTP will be relocating their office and studios to the warehouse in 2018.
