Created in 1882 in a small town in Sweden called Kopparberg, it all began when local brewers got together and built the Kopparberg Bryggeri. Since then, the iconic taste of fruity ciders in an array of different flavours has taken over pubs, clubs, bars and festivals.
This week they are hosting a series of workshops, talks and events with mind-boggling creative talent including Margot Bowman, Hattie Stewart, Pothole Gardener, Pure Evil, and more, to celebrate the DIY culture and get you all a bit creative! The aim of these events is to invite everyone to get creative and step out of their comfort zones and follow their passions. With events in Manchester last week, all the London events are taking place in Shoreditch starting on Saturday, 20th of October. Illustrator Hattie Stewart, (who has done work for Urban Outfitters, Luella, Interview Magazine – just to name a few) will be showing us how to ‘Doodle-bomb’ that afternoon.
On Monday 22nd, all-round artist and designer artist Margot Bowman (creative director of The Esthetica Review, Painted Truths for Notion, Another Magazine) will be hosting a GIF workshop, for all of you blog/Tumblr radicals. Tuesday will be a dynamic discussion by Let Them Eat Cake (www.cakeit.net), an online piece of art for writers, photographers, and anyone else willing to get involved with fashion in any way. Wednesday will be all music talk with Detroit born DJ Seth Troxler and Resident Advisor, one of the biggest online electronic music magazines around today. It will be a sequence of chats with artists, labels and promoters that are defining the electronic music scene of today. Closing the ün-establishment series of events will be a talk about the future of publishing with CRACK, STACK Magazines, Dylan Jones (editor of UK GQ) and Hanna Hanra (features Ed of i-D).
So if you’re feeling some creative vibes and a few Kopparbergs, sign up on the Facebook event and pop down!
