This Week's Discoveries
A small selection of the art, news and culture we've been inspired by this week.
Inside The Spider - Suzie Howell
We've always been a big fan of our neighbour Suzie Howell and her photography, this week we've been getting extra excited as her new exhibition Inside the Spider opens on Monday at the Print House, Dalston. It's a photographic project exploring Walthamstow Marshes, one of the last natural wetlands in London. Visiting on a regular basis, Suzie's explored her own changing relationship with the landscape. We've seen a few sneak peaks and it looks so good, we can't wait!
PRIVATE VIEW: 16/11/17 18.00-20.30
EXHIBITION: 13/11/17 - 13/12/17
SHOUT OUT TO THE GIRLS: A celebration of awesome Australian women
Shout Out To The Girls is a new title from Penguin Books, which celebrates Australian women who have shaped our history through incredible achievements. The book is a celebration of women in all fields, from all walks of life, and from Australia’s past and present. Easy-to-read biographies together with colourful illustrations by female artists such as Astred Hicks and Evi O, is putting this book high up on our wish list.
Girlfriend Collective is an activewear brand, working with recycling stations in Taiwan, to recycle water bottles from which they create functional (and beautiful!) workout wear. They pay their workers 125% of the local minimum wage, and make sure that even though their fabric is made from plastic, it's BPA free. We want all the colours!
Founded in 2012 by coastal enthusiast Dom Bridges, Haeckles is a natural skin and fragrance brand based in Margate. The small, high quality range of products use seaweed and other locally grown botanicals to promote Margates heritage of healthy coastal living. At WAM HQ we're pretty fond of Margate, and we always make sure to stop by Haeckles when we are around. Favourites at the moment is the Seaweed facial masque and the sea buckthorn cleanser, both reminding us of refreshing walks along the coast.
