I’ve been busy glazing cup cakes this week. I will be getting the next batch out of the kiln later so watch this space.
I stayed with a friend a few weekends ago and we visited some venues as part of London Open House. There were so many to choose from and after seeing a mile queue outside the Bank of England we chose to seek out venues less unknown that didn’t have huge queues.
Our first stop was at some artist studios in Shoreditch
, Village Underground
, they are ex London Underground tube train carriages
recycled to form creative studios
on an abandoned viaduct. Check out their website
, they’ve also got an amazing warehouse space.

We also had a tour of Hackney Town Hall that has some amazing original Art Deco features and a few really bad modernisations, i wish I’d got a photo! The weather was great so we stopped off at the London Fields lido for a wonderful open air swim then a nice cup of tea. On the way home we spotted this….. a spiral stair case for a cat
! I noticed the cat flap first then the ladder, what a great invention.
So there are a few things beginning with C, Cup cakes, creative carriages and a cat ladder! I’d recommend London Open House for next year, so much to choose from and some fab venues to see, a weekend just isn’t long enough.
