As part of Ben Judd’s Stanley Picker Fellowship project The Origin, a series of workshops, performances, talks and tours will take place at Stanley Picker Gallery, a boat moored in Kingston Upon Thames and online throughout June and July 2021.
Join us for a foraging workshop organised by designer Louis Polin, who developed the graphic identity for the The Origin with Jasmine Kelly. Participants will meet by the boat on the banks of the Thames, and work their way along the Hogsmill River path to the Gallery. En route they will forage edible flowers, fruits and plant life, led by experienced forager Ru Kenyon.
Booking in advance is essential. Places are limited. You will be sent the exact meeting location before the event, which will be in walking distance from Kingston town centre. If you have any access requirements, please contact us on 0208 417 4074 to discuss.

Boat: 16 June 2pm Foraging Workshop
Ben Judd’s Stanley Picker Fellowship project The Origin reflects on Britain’s island status, both literal and metaphorical, and how islands shape the communities that live there. The Origin brings together the communities surrounding the Stanley Picker Gallery – from Kingston University students and academics to local networks, charities and residents – and asks them to imagine a classless, stateless, humane society based on common ownership. A temporary community, an experiment in living, a fictional island group. This collaborative project culminates this summer with an installation at the Gallery, a boat on the River Thames and a series of performances, workshops and events – a rehearsal for an alternative future.
