Two weeks ago I signed up to The London Artisan bloggers brunch. I learned more about the new market in Shoreditch and hung out with the lovely bloggers Natasha, Jesse and Jaye, and host Verity (such a beautiful name). The London Artisan started last year in November on Brick Lane and is a hub of crafters and designers. I could have spent hours there. Well, I did and I talked to quite a few artisans.
The London Artisan takes place every Sunday from 10 am to 5 pm and you can buy a variety of handmade products from new and established makers and designers. I couldn’t resist and bought the cutest ‘fox’ print ever, illustrated by Maria from Volpine (see below). I actually have a new goal and I started with this print. I want to collect prints from new designers from all over the world and I like to dedicate a wall in my flat just for those prints. A wall of stories in pictures! What do you think?
Some designers are at the market every Sunday others come and go. Below is a list of my faves from that weekend but I will definitely go back and discover more creative people.
ShamCityRoasters – such good filter coffee… I had no idea
GRAYJAY – beautiful jewellery or should I say pieces of art
Ros Shiers – for dog lovers (me!!!)
Alchemy Craft – a bit of an old school website but his pieces are simply amazing (it’s made of real leaves)
Herald Black – very creative prints & collages
Crystal & Stone – can I please have all the pretty rings?!
Volpine – very cute prints
Discover more designers & makers at The London Artisan or online here.
Don’t forget to participate in their latest competition. You can win a lot of self-made products from the designers of the market. Here’s what you have to do.
I can’t wait to go back. Have you already been?
