Root5 @ Clerkenwell Design Week

T-1 days...it's here. Our home will be for 3 short days transformed into a buzz of hot pink design stands, stores, trails and studios. There will be drinks, design, architecture, interiors, furniture, the weird, the wonderful the strange. There might be sunshine...!

Following our Christmas pop-up design store, and the moving in of Root5's new friend Rob of The Reclaimed Flooring Co to our former Pop-Up Shop Space we decided to throw open our building, 111-113 St John Street to give you a look at what is going on here, hidden behind that green door.

We've got events...click here, such as Casting with Sian Evans (picture below), Alchemy & Anodising with Jenny Parker, and Rob will be giving out Tree Planting kits and no doubt telling tales of wood geekery.

These demonstrations of the 'Studios-at-Work' will be part of the Open Studios.  No appointment necessary just pop-in, have a look around, say hello and satisfy your intrigue!

And if this excitement wasn't quite enough...

Root5 will launch their brand-new Web-Shop, the Summer Design Edit with drinks and frivolity from 6pm on Thursday 23rd May.  Come along and see the showcase of the newly curated shop.
