The Chelsea Fringe Festival, now in its second year, is sweeping every kind of venue all across London – they have even arrived to Vienna!

And Oxford House (Oh!) will be part of it not one or two but with four events!

To get started, Oh! will host a series of workshops based on different activities and visual delights, leading you from the silk worm to modern day textiles. Organised by Colour Collective, children and adults will enjoy “cocooning…”, “history of dyeing…” and “why wear it…”

Building on this, how about an unexpected evening and a Dinner to Dye For. A mix of experiences from dyeing to testing natural cocktails, and a pop-up dinner using London’s botanicals.

If you are fed up of ‘doing’ over the week and you are feeling more like seeing, don’t miss the opportunity of get to know Flanders & Swann in wellies. Can you dig it? is real fun for both vegetable-growing novices and seasoned cultivators!

Connecting all these events, ‘Oh3: 3 Artist at Oxford House’, fantastic art exhibition up in Oxford House Gallery until the 25th of June. Emma Hardicker, Lesley Raven and Sandro Migliarini explore the world of nature, plants and gardens.
