Freddie Robins has been ‘making’ at Beasley Brothers Repair Shop with the designer, Carl Clerkin. Beasley Brothers’ Repair Shop is Clerkin’s brainchild. It is modelled on traditional East End repair shops of old, that could and would repair anything. Clerkin is inviting other artists and designers to join him during the exhibition, working live to transform discarded objects to give them a new lease of life.
Clerkin has also selected photographs of his favourite artists’ and designers’ repairs. He has included Robins’ domestic repair Sofa damaged by cats, repaired by human through use of custom made tin badges.
