An Instagram masterclass at The Forge, Bristol

Updated: Sep 13, 2022


If you're not yet following us on Instagram we'd like to recommend that you do so!

At the start of the Summer we attended a fabulous Instagram workshop hosted here in Bristol at The Forge. If you haven't yet visited The Forge, it's worth making a trip to explore this beautiful space which we fell in love with. The Forge is a historic industrial space built in the mid 1800’s. It was originally a coach house & then a blacksmiths. And it was a working Forge up until it was bought and renovated in 2015 by musician/builder Si John and designer/photographer Silkie Lloyd.


Accessed via a small back lane just off Colston street, it sits high above the old Bristol centre on huge Victorian buttresses with a view of St Johns gate & the old city wall. Sensitively renovated, the Forge holds onto its historic providence. It's unique character and space with added rustic furnishing offered the perfect place to host this creative workshop.

The workshop was hosted by the inspiring team behind In Clover. In Clover magazine is a bi-annual publication whose aim is to bring people together in the creative community and in offline pursuits. Having found Instagram an instrumental tool for marketing and expanding the brand, the editorial team wanted to bring people together to help them flourish with their business and personal ventures by utilising Instagram as a pivotal and free tool.
