Events

We love to spread Fabrications activities and ethos outside of our own venue too! We have 'tried and tested' workshop packages or we are very happy to work collaboratively, tailoring activities to your event theme and the people you are engaging.

Barley Massey works alongside a range of knowledgable, interactive and creative facilitators who are also professional designer makers with experience of delivering workshops to people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds.

We have been involved in a wide range of events from small, intimate situations to huge festivals, cultural community days and trade/consumer shows. Clients include: French Connection, Hackney Museum,The Barbican, Lollibop  Festival, Southbank Centre, Hackney, Tower Hamlets, Newham, Camden Councils, Secret Garden Party, Thames Festival.
