We Make London, Old Spitalfields Market, 10 November

We Make London is a creative organisation dedicated to supporting British designer-makers by offering them the opportunity to affordably sell and promote their work to a wider market through events and fairs dedicated to showcasing their work and, now, also through the new book
Inspired:London - A Guide to Handmade in London.

Founded by a group of like-minded designer-makers, We Make London is passionate about uniting buyers with designer-makers who offer something unique in today’s fast-paced, throw-away world of mass production.

In the current climate, price-conscious consumers are selective and deserve something special and the designer-makers of We Make London perfectly sum up this new mood in shopping.

We Make London fairs and events are now the showcase for the talents and crafts of the most exciting UK designers.


I am proud to say that I will be participating in this event on 10 November selling my designs - I hope people will come and buy my stuff, and that of my colleagues!!

Here is a map - the nearest underground station is LIVERPOOL STREET

Promotional image for Art, Craft & Design - cross-overs and boundaries in the 21st Century
  • What:
    Free talks & tours
  • When:
  • Where:
    Hochhauser Auditorium, Sackler Centre, Victoria and Albert Museum
    FREE TALK: Join six eminent speakers from the three sectors of art, craft, and design as they discuss the evolving nature of craft and how shifting allegiances and cross-overs have lead it to defy categorisation.
The debate will be in two sessions chaired by Glenn Adamson: Robin Wood will make a plea for the preservation of traditional skills, with responses from Sir Nicholas Goodison and Tanya Harrod. After the Q&A, Tracey Rowledge will talk about the reinvention of traditional skills in the 21st century with responses from Sir Christopher Frayling and Mel Howse.
Organised by the Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust (QEST) which makes awards to craftspeople who reflect the excellence of British craftsmanship, such as scholar and saddle maker Mia Sabel, who was employed by Mark Taylor to work on his design for a briefcase and used her skills to help develop the manufacture of the leatherwork for this highly original product (see image).
Part of London Design Festival 2012.

Free Event

This event takes place on Friday 21 September 2012 at 10:30
