Gubns @ Bloqs: Make an Engraved Brass</p?
Pen Join us for our first metal workshop in partnership with Gubns, the new platform for architect-makers, and learn to create your very own bespoke, engraved brass pen from scratch. The workshop will be guided by Gubns member Aimilios (‘Emil’) Davlantis Lo, a London-based Architect, Machinist and Mechanical Workshop Engineer at UCL’s High Precision Design and Fabrication Facility. Emil will guide you through the workshop, tools, and various procedures before it’s your turn to make your brass pen. No experience needed and all materials will be provided. The intimate workshop has only 10 spaces available, allowing participants to work closely under expert guidance. The course runs for a total of 5 hours, with a 30min break and includes a drink on us at the Gubns Bloqs Party! Book here
