CS4 Home of Innovation since 2009

20160311_152600Since  May 2009 CS4  has worked as a positive model for circular economy on a frontline

  • 15years worth of fabric lengths and swatches from landfill
  • trained 10 youths back in education and employment
  • run design pattern cutting and making workshops for refugee ladies, children’s centers and community groups

  • 2 digital radio soundproof studios
  • 4 graphic design desks with film editing capacity
  • 1 photography area
  • 8 desk computers
  • 1 boardroom
  • 1 creative room

Anyone welcome to rent a desk, become a member or deliver community classes of their liking.

Meeting our Creative neighbours

 In Muswell Hill we met amazing creative people working from healthy landmarks…

Inspiration is never that far and the East part of the borough is desperately sorely lacking in individual positive input into the texture of society…

Positive initiatives can be the target of jealousy and destruction… yet we can feel the bounty of human spirit just up the Hill… Thank you for restoring us and sharing…

 

We Are So Creative

From all parts of UK and France it was amazing to meet and share possibilities on our common journey to the Southern dunes of creative inspiration

graphic artists, virtual workspaces designers, healers… all come to share sunshine and positivity…

Gifts for Designers

 We are slowly dismantling CS4, finding a suitable home for 8 years of resources and knowhow to pass further:

—  create a new kind of mobile studio helping start-up young designers and women gain skill and employment in our community,

— as well as a worldwide network for ethical awareness to protect designer’s intellectual property naturally,

— establish new healthier more sustainable ways to share resources and knowledge across continents.

19-8-17 Ch… cane to pick up a desk for her design work at home. The desk was part of Ikea Award in 2009.

We picked the two sewing machines from the Hub and she will be using one at home until we find a new Design home.

17-8-17 A group of Design students from Hanoi, Vietnam,  came to visit Studio 4 on a sourcing trip from London College for Design and Fashion, they picked up a box of hangers donated by a company to study fiber composition and names.

16-7-18 I visited Freedom Recruit in London to explore new ways to share skills, possibly full time in a reputable company while the Studio Women Enterprise will evolve from home and from a new shared base in the future.

Today An… will visit to do Creative Inventory and number fabric items by category for newly trained ladies to sew and sell.

==========================================——————————-

Despite a system unable to admit the positive value or existence of CS4 — allowing men to act as bullies on communities…

Conveniently labelling CS4 the Children’s Centre  to maintain  a certain distance…

Creative Studio 4 is inviting all women from  social estates around the globe to share AFTER HOURS…

The Studio survived 8 long years of Frontline baffling circumstances  providing hope for young women at risk and helped them access their creative selves…

The Frontline, is hardly visited by officials. To be seen and identified on the Frontline is not the adventure the establishment is prepared to risk…

To get an appointment to create cluster risk assessment after the 5-5-17 unfortunate drive-by double shot was impossible…

Leaving our window shattered and us  meeting after hours in safer environments.—-
