Winter 2013

NEW FOR 2013! 3 Buildings. 150 Designers. The Ultimate Shopping Treat!

LOCATION Made in Clerkenwell is spread across 3 buildings: 21 Clerkenwell Green EC1R 0DX, 33-35 St John’s Square EC1M 4DS & The Goldsmiths’ Centre, London EC1M 5AD*.

OPENING TIMES Thurs 28 Nov, 5-8pm / Fri 29 Nov, 12noon – 8pm / Sat 30 Nov & Sun 1 Dec, 12-5pm* / *The Goldsmiths’ Centre is closed on Sunday.

ADMISSION £3 each (under 16’s free)

It’s nearly that time of year again and we’re planning your Christmas shopping! We’re excited to announce that we’ve teamed up with our neighbours, The Goldsmiths’ Centre, to bring you an additional venue full of design talent to enjoy at the next Made in Clerkenwell event. New for winter 2013, explore Craft Central’s 2 fascinating Victorian studio buildings in the heart of creative Clerkenwell as well as an indoor design market in the beautiful Goldsmiths’ Centre. All 3 venues are located within convenient strolling distance, just 2 minutes away from each other.

Avoid the high street and opt for handmade! Shop for ready-to-buy fashion, jewellery, accessories, ceramics, printmaking, illustration and interior products by 150 selected UK designer-makers. Choose a gift, commission a unique piece, find a bespoke design service or just browse… Whether you can spare an hour or a whole day, mingle with the makers in the studios where they work their magic. One ticket allows unlimited access over 4 days, including Thursday’s launch event and Friday’s late night shopping.

Don’t miss… Look Mum No Hands serving up locally roasted Squaremile coffee, home-made cakes, savoury treats and locally brewed craft beer; The Wedding Smashers on the decks; festive flowers from Flor Unikon; and The Bench Cafe at The Goldsmiths’ Centre for even more delicious food and drink. Not to mention our free mulled wine bar in Clerkenwell Green!

Further information and high quality visuals are available from Craft Central: 020 7251 0276

    It was great to meet one half of The Big forest at this event- Thank you for the friendly chat. I love the felt goodies and cut out village that I bought.

    • Excellent. So sorry I missed you! I had to travel on Thursday and Friday and missed so many folk who dropped in for a chat. Hopefully we will meet at another event.
