Shedonism 2024


Monday 22nd January evening to Saturday 27th January
@ 101 Outdoor Arts

£80 per person (Including accommodation and catering)

Shedonism is a professional development gathering, presented exclusively for professional makers creating work for the outdoors and public space.


Shedonism is a gathering of the brilliant minds and skills behind the inventions and sculptures that make UK Outdoor Arts so exciting. It is a chance for the folk that are normally in the workshop and may not tour or go to industry events to get together in the deep of winter to have fun and share ideas and skills.


At 101 we have a fully equipped workshop that can house all the makers, a large space for test driving, food and accommodation. The makers can bring the projects that have been sat on a shelf in their workshop or their minds and jam it out with everyone - or see what inspires them. It turns into a free flowing marathon of making, eating and after work socialising. We've made a hovercraft, a chainsaw scooter, a rubber band Gatling gun and much more. You can make the things that you’d never be let loose on the street with. The key is sharing your skills.


Shedonism is for makers who for at least part of their lives make inventions, instruments, structures, gadgets and sculptures for presentation in the outdoors and in public spaces. We are interested in attracting a diversity of voices and particularly welcome applications from individuals that are currently under-represented in the sector.


There are very limited places at Shedonism and we want to make sure that one space is kept for a young maker who is new to the field and keen to get stuck in, learn and network. You may well know this person so please let them know about this opportunity.
