The Exhibition — The Working Artisans Club 2013 culminates in an immersive exhibition at our gallery 71a.

The Working Artisans’ Club is a celebration of modern-day makers. They shape boards, sew wetsuits and hand-make beautiful objects inspired by their passion for the outdoors. And they make life better for us all.

Over the course of this year HUCK met six artisans who are shaping their future with their own two hands. And on September 20, those stories will spring to life as an immersive multi-media exhibition. Join us!

THE WORKING ARTISANS’ CLUB
20 – 27 September 2013

71a Leonard St, EC2A 4QS

MON – FRI 10AM – 5PM
SAT 12PM – 5PM

Featuring…
Satta Skates · Neon Wetsuits · Lovenskate · Expanded Eye · Miscellaneous Adventures · Francli

In 1952, with a needle and thread in one hand and eyes firmly on the surf, Jack O’Neill invented the wetsuit, just so that he could stay out in the water longer. His simple ambition led to an extraordinary future, both for himself and the surfing world as a whole.

The Working Artisan’s Club is the next chapter of that story. Continuing Jack O’Neill’s legacy, this is a project about the makers of today and the future that they’re shaping.
