Yinka Ilori

Yinka Ilori is a East London based designer with a degree in furniture and product design. He specialises in up-cycling vintage furniture inspired by traditional Nigerian parables and African fabrics that he grew up with as a child. Each piece of furniture that he up-cycles tells a meaningful, yet humorous story which can be shared with people throughout the world.

Yinka Ilori Up-Cycling Workshop

He is running his 3rd series of up-cycling workshops starting in May! You’ll get the chance to upcycle your own chair in his studio in the heart of East London! You’ll get the opportunity to up-cycle your own chair inspired by the traditional Nigerian parables you select and decide to work with! It’s a fun experience where you learn about the art of storytelling through Nigerian parables.

You’ll be musically inspired with sweet African music while working on your chairs and possibly luckily for you in this series there will be a live talking drummer throughout the series playing the parables while you work!
