The Urban Waste Mine
London’s first “Waste Mine”. All things Reclaimed, Recycled, Salvaged and Remade. A Pre-Apocalypse Paradise. Futuristic Films, Talks, Lectures, Events and Education.
To be officially launched in conjunction with The London Festival of Architecture 2019.http://www.londonfestivalofarchitecture.org
The Urban Waste Mine will provide the backdrop for many different creative events. Here you may just wander and look at the array of things on show, buy something , eat with friends, book a room for a meeting, dinner, birthday, drawing class, maybe plan a film night or an art themed kitsch or quirky wedding.
For sale will be furniture, fabrics, up-cycled and remade items, reclaimed designs, cabins, clothes and lighting.
As well as the above will be slabs of wood, off cuts of plywood and plaster board plus many other things that we all need in a small amounts that is difficult to buy from usual outlets. Our extensive collection of previously 'scrap' items will be added to our display week by week with an ever changing assortment becoming a live art event in its own right.
We also have an on-site processing plant for waste materials.
Here demolition timbers are de-nailed and planed, broken windows have their glass removed to be made into picture frames, plastic containers of different sizes are turned into lighting and film set flats and building site hoarding is converted into panels for building cabins.Our on-site store is immense and some of the larger pieces include the timber roof from a demolished church and A-frames from a large Victorian warehouse, 60 plus glue-lam timbers that were the support beams from the channel tunnel and many more large reclaimed wooden beams. We have way over a 100 doors and windows plus numerous ducting and ventilation components with many other interesting industrial items, that include machinery and electrics.
Please look out for updates for open days and up-coming events.
