Heal’s Koji furniture designed and created by Koji Katsuragi using the bodging technique
The two week market, beginning on 3 February, will showcase a selection of collectibles, crafts and live workshops.
The Heal’s Bodging Race will take place in the store’s front window from the 3 February. The race features furniture designers such as Koji Katsuragi and Sarah Kay who will use unseasoned wood and traditional Windsor chair making techniques to create unique designs.
The event also features charitable social enterprise Out of the Dark, who specialise in producing furniture, will develop pieces from the Bodging Race.
Carmel Allen, creative director at Heal’s, says, ‘We ran more than 35 free workshops and entertained more than 1,500 customers with demonstrations and hands-on involvement with craft. This year, we plan to invite customers to collaborate and create even more. The live Bodging Race in the windows will be a spectacle in itself and I’m thrilled at the calibre of designers who are taking part.’
Location: The Heal’s Building, 196 Tottenham Court Road, London, W1T 7LQ
Open: 3 – 16 February 2015
