Blackhorse Workshop presents Atomic 50: Time Travels in Tin - an immersive journey through Waltham Forest’s rich heritage in manufacturing and metalwork.
Desgned for accompanied children aged 7-11 years old, this 90-minute theatrical making experience introduces children to an amazing world of metalworking tools and techniques.
Atomic 50 has returned to the borough, this time not to make toys, cutlery or aeronautical components, but to explore the exciting potential of tin in the 21st century. In operation for just a month, the factory is on a mission for new recruits to sign up to the metalworking revolution.
Blackhorse Workshop, Waltham Forest’s renowned wood and metal workshop, will transform a disused school building in Leyton into a ‘ghost factory’, Atomic 50, in a radical reimagining of the traditional learning environment, leading participants on an exciting journey through time and metalworking.
Blackhorse Workshop will work with acclaimed performance artist Abigail Conway and set designer Soraya Gilanni Viljoen to create the one-off installation.
