10 . 10 . 12
We headed up to the big smoke yesterday to set up our Storyboard exhibition at the Patagonia store in Covent Garden. It took a little longer than expected and will be just about ready for our opening tonight from 4-7pm, so if you’re in the area after work, drop in and have a look around.
We have the whole exhibition with us – the board half built showing the poem inscribed on the framework and 12 framed images by Mat Arney. This project began about 18 months ago and shows the story of one of our boards built completely from the same tree. We began in the woods seeing the foresters at work and then on to the mill to see the timber being processed before we took a selection of planks back to the workshop to begin making a board from scratch, plywood and all.
We were lucky enough to have the story published in a Surfer’s Path article earlier this year, written by Mat, and we have produced some books that tell the story in further depth that will be on sale in store. The whole exhibition, and prints of the images – framed or unframed will also be for sale, so head on in and we hope you like what you see.
