Wednesday April 20th Private visit to a Hoxton studio and street art tour 10am-1pm
Explore this vibrant area of the East End. Starting at Hoxton Overground we will take a quick look at the gardens and the transformation of the Museum of the Home by Wright and Wright Architects. Gavin has arranged a private visit to an artist-led gallery where we should get the chance to see a printmaking studio, ceramics studio, paper conservation and painting studio. We may visit some other contemporary galleries if they are open and en route discover vibrant street art including works by Banksy and STIK and a famous shop where you can buy works by international street artists. We will finish near Shoreditch High Street Overground station. Please note there are a couple of flights of stairs in the gallery, although the rest of the walk is flat. Due to the nature of the tour the end time is flexible but will probably be about 1pm.
12 places maximum so book in time!
