a space for you
Located in Denmark Hill, Camberwell
Blue Shop Cottage is a central hub for arts, music and culture in South East London.
Ocki Magill, AKA The Letter Bug, bought and renovated this gorgeous shop in 2016 and added the name Blue Shop Cottage upon completion of the makeover.
In the past the shopspace has been a bookshop, a hairdresser and a vintage clothing store - the space is now Ocki's home but she invites you to get in touch with your ideas. The aim is to create a vibrant space for the local Camberwell and Peckham community. A flower shop one week and an immersive exhibition the next. From workshops to panel discussions the space is a flexible canvas for you your ideas.

Rose Nisbet will be hosting a pop up shop selling her beautiful ceramics and textiles. She will also be running TWO weekend workshops to celebrate the local Camberwell Open Gardens where everyone can create their own ceramic nature inspired planter. "I think home interiors should be full of laughter, character and bright wonderful things. My ceramics and textiles are full of patterns and narrative, where surreal daydreams merge into to our own world." Rose is based in Bristol where she works from her studio with three other artists/makers.
15th - 24th June 2018

'The Difference between things'
Our favourite printmaker Rose Electra Harris (@roseelectraharris) is having her first solo show at Blue Shop Cottage. "Modern-Fauvist Harris’s vibrantly coloured works explore the interior, creating dreamlike and surreal interpretations of domestic spaces. Constantly using motifs such as lemon squeezers, chairs, bath tubs or chandeliers in her distorted perspective scenes, Harris reimagines a colourful dialogue between space and objects to emphasise the importance of the everyday. So excited to see Rose’s work come to life as she creates an immersive home-like setting with hand-painted plant pots and table and chairs to accompany and reflect her vibrantly-coloured interior-based works. Don’t miss !!!"
