The Lives of Buildings Festival at Trinity Buoy Wharf

jotta artist Lee Simmons exhibits his work ‘The Hidden Histories of a Broken Boat’ an exhibition and workshop in the Chain Store at Trinity Buoy Wharf this weekend.

Behind Closed Doors gives the public a chance to take a look inside the studios of the Trinity Buoy Wharf creative community.

Find out about the low cost but highly effective approach that turned a former buoy manufacturing site into a thriving centre for the arts and creative industries that includes a range of historic buildings and London's only lighthouse alongside the innovative Container Cities- housing and workspaces built inside containers.

Take a peek at artists and fashion designers at work whilst having the opportunity to purchase a one off straight from its creator.

Wheelhouse from a wrecked boat is residing at Trinity Buoy Wharf, London, where the memories of this structure are visibly evolving as drawings and photographs: a walk in book.

jotta artist Lee Simmons has work and will be taking part in workshops which invite visitors to interpret the boat's past, to record it's stories in colour, and therefore contribute to a book in process.

There will be a series of 1 1/2 hour dynamic painting, drawing and drama workshops for young people (of any age), with the artist. Water based paints will be used, all skill levels are welcome.
