The Renegade Craft Fair, a regular twice-yearly weekend event, returns to the Truman's Brewery in Spitalfields on Saturday 7th & Sunday 8th November 2015. There will be more tan 125 vendors selling things they have made and designed themselves - plus some live things happening too. Perfect for early Christmas inspiration!
"Now in its thirteenth year, the US-based Renegade Craft Fair returns to London 7-8 November from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. at the Old Truman Brewery, located in East London on 81 Brick Lane. Admission is free to this event, which will feature artisan crafts, food, DIY workshops, and a portrait artist to welcome Christmas shoppers.
A selectively curated assortment of more than 125 vendor stalls will provide exciting options for holiday gift giving, such as jewelry, ceramics, home décor, children’s accessories and toys, letterpress stationery, art prints, and knitwear. All items featured in the Fair are handmade by emerging and established artisans and offer an opportunity to support local makers.
Feeling inspired to join in on the handmade spirit? Visit some of the Fair’s festive DIY workshops! Textile artist Amy Ilic will offer weaving workshops both Saturday and Sunday for £10, which includes all supplies and materials. Prickle Press will also assist shoppers in creating personalized letterpress cards at £5 each.
As a special feature, portrait artist Emma Block will be on hand Sunday to create her live illustration watercolours, in which she will paint unique portraits of guests in just five minutes — a lovely gift for family or friends.
For attendees looking to boost their shopping stamina, My Little Cake Tin will provide a selection of bakes and cakes at a beautiful dessert table. Offerings will include friands, brownies, tartlets, cakes, cookies, and more.
Oh Comely will be present with a Christmas subscription offer, back issues, and exclusive merchandise from their shop, including pieces designed by Owen Gent, Marie Gardeski and Kaye Blegvad. Lifestyle editor and photographer Liz Seabrook will operate a photo booth, creating Oh Comely “Cover Girls” as a perfect and silly way to complement any gift."
