Nineteen joined our good friend Kay to collaborate at her Bristol Pop up of her Kinship Gatherings; A place for fellow creatives to come together meet one another ( put faces to Instagram handles), chat & basically have a wonderful evening and leave feeling very inspired. The main source of all this inspiration is Kay herself…the single most passionate creative person you could meet. Kay is a fellow forager, workshop host and collaborator- encouraging creatives to make connections, share advice & knowledge and to work together to help fellow creatives who might be struggling with social media get exposure. Kay is from suffolk/essex border but her home-town is Bristol so she comes back to pop up here twice a year. We have done 2 events at Fed on Gloucester road, Bristol and it is a great little space with gorgeous house plants and those tiled walls!! Kay also fabulously decorated the bar with her foraged finds and put on a spread of cheese, olives etc and some fizz.
We met Kay when we had our shop Nineteen and so our collaboration journey started. We hosted on a few occasions at the shop, so we are so happy to still be friends and still able to collaborate even thou we don’t have a space of our own.
’ It has been wonderful to bring Kinship Gatherings to my home town and to widen our creative community. I love to see people forging new friendships, finding ways to collaborate and seeking/sharing advice in a supportive and fun environment.’ Kay, Kinship
As part of this event we set up with a small shop/stall with Beshley of Kknot_studios we both took along a selection of vintage finds, dried flowers, plants and some crystals! This is the start of a future collaboration with Beshley - called GATHERED ( we have a pop up in Clevedon on 12th Oct and 9th Nov at st, Johns hall 10-4 pm)
Victoria ran a small workshop for attendees. The workshop shared re-potting techniques, we split and re-potted some beautiful house-plants into vintage jam jars to take home.
’I love sharing a variety of skills with others and showing simple ideas that we can all do - dividing and re-potting our house plants mean we can share babies with our friends and family- and planted in a beautiful pot they look stylish . We cover our soil with some decorative moss or crushed shells to make them look extra lovely’ Victoria (@vandthings)
The next Kinship Gathering in Bristol will take place in Feb 2019 so make sure you contact Kay to get the details…hope to see some of you there!
