A project exploring sheds, shacks and shelters across Waltham Forest. The exhibition will include film and photography installed in Bodega 50, a cafe sited in a building originally constructed in what was once a narrow alleyway between two buildings.

Includes a new publication with a text by architect Jonathan Crossley, designed by Claudia Schenk (trockenbot) and printed at Aldgate Press.

The show is on two floors and the upstairs is only accessible via a narrow flight of stairs. The film can be viewed elsewhere if this is an issue for anyone.

Self Build Archaeology workshop


As part of the Self Build project I am working with local archaeologist Helen Johnston to map and date objects and fragments found by local residents in gardens and allotments. If you have an item found in Waltham Forest please bring it along to decipher clues to its history and add it to our found objects map.

Sunday 2nd June, 2pm – 4pm
One Hoe Street

1 Hoe St
E17 4SD

Drop in, no need to book.


Self Build also included a pergola built by MA Architecture students from the University of East London in the edible garden at the Limes, Walthamstow, using recycled artwork crates from Momart Art Transport & Storage. You can view the pergola from the street 24 hours a day on Mission Grove, E17.
