Choctober - Saturday 24th October 2015 - Small Food Bakery
To celebrate our next door neighbour Small Food Bakery's first birthday, Lane are teaming up with them (the best sourdough bakers in the city) and chocolatiers Boutique Aromatique for a special autumn celebration. Come down to Primary Studios for a lazy autumn hangout and treat yourself to local products in time for Christmas, great food and check out the latest contemporary art exhibition.
Here's what's on offer...
LANE LOCAL SHOP
We will be launching the Lane 'local shop', having converted part of the studio into a shop. We'll be selling Lane products and artist books designed by Lane directors Joff and Ollie.
We'll be selling both new and sample items and offering special discounts on stock items. Other products by local collaborators will be added to the shop, with details to be added later.
The shop will be open every Friday and Saturday on the run up to Christmas.
PRINT YOUR OWN LETTERPRESS CHRISTMAS CARD - MINI WORKSHOP
Have a go at old fashioned letterpress printing with Oliver Wood, Lane design director and typographer.
A chance to use an original Adana Letterpress printing machine popular in the 1930s and 40s amongst hobby printers and discerning professionals. For £3.00 you can print your own card on beautiful British made paper and it comes with a special embossed envelope.
LAUNCH OF BEAM - NEW LANE TABLE LAMP
We'll also be launching our new table lamp 'Beam' which will be available for pre-order for Christmas and there will be a selection of lamp prototypes available at very special prices.
SMALL FOOD BAKERY / BOUTIQUE AROMATIQUE
Small Food Bakery will be offering their usual selection of sourdough bread, wonderful pastries and cakes and will be teaming up with top chocolatier Shelly Preston of Boutique Aromatique for a special collaboration and workshop - more details coming soon.
Throughout the day we'll be having a selection of acoustic performers from the city's thriving music scene, coming down to perform a tune or two.
