Open House at The Forge on the Isle of Dogs – 22nd and 23rd September 2018

Last year, I had a look around The Forge which is one of the few buildings that survive from the great Victorian shipbuilding industry in Millwall.

If you would like to look inside this fascinating old building it will open during the Open House weekend on the 22nd and 23rd September 2018. Recently the Forge was turned workshops and gallery space for Craft Central.

However, many original features remain and The Friends of Island History Trust will be on hand to explain about the building and the surrounding area.

The Friends of Island History Trust have recently become a recognised charity and will show a variety of images and prints that celebrate the remarkable history of the Isle of Dogs.

Emrys who redesigned the Forge for Craft Central will be exhibiting their innovative designs, shortlisted for several awards and commended for a New London Award.

There will be a Glass at the Forge exhibition with twenty international glass & metal artists in The Gallery.

Darren Appiagyei, one of a new generation of woodturners, will be showcasing a range of his work.

There will also a Pop-up cafe available.

Getting to the Forge

Craft Central at The Forge is a five-minute walk from Mudchute DLR which connects at Canary Wharf with Bank and Stratford. The Forge is close to Masthouse Pier for Thames river bus services from Central London and Greenwich. It is also a short walk from the Greenwich foot tunnel.
