This December head to East Village London to get into the festive spirit with a Christmas pop-up shopping experience with a difference!

The neighbourhood hosts its first ever Christmas Makers Market, with FREE entry. East Village has teamed up with emerging lifestyle brand Earl of East London to host the market, following their ongoing success as curators of local craftsmanship.

Coming together under the ‘Movers + Makers’ collective, Earl of East London has brought together London artisans to create the Christmas Makers Market at East Village E20 to celebrate the best new brands and crafts that the capital has to offer. The shopping space will curate beautiful hand-crafted goods under one roof and is set to be the perfect destination for those in search of unique Christmas gifts for their loved ones.

Christmas shoppers will be able to buy quality leather goods and accessories from Briggs and Shears, delicate hand-crafted jewellery from Inger Studio and beautiful hand-drawn designs from London’s finest calligraphers, Lamplighter London, as well as individual ceramic pieces from Blue Guy Pottery and indoor planters and terrariums with Ro Co.

The makers will also showcase their talents with a series of workshops so visitors can try their hand at making their own personalised Christmas gifts or even pick up a new hobby. Makers will demonstrate the fundamental skills of a craft with classes ranging from copper wreath-making to mini calligraphy workshops and how to handcraft leather items – perfect for handmade Christmas gifts.

The Christmas Market will be open at weekends from the 5th – 20th December on Saturdays from 11am to 6pm and Sundays from 11am to 5pm.  Plus an extra night has been added due to popular demand, with the market opening from 6-9pm on Thursday 10 December!

With an array of unique new brands and makers on show, craft classes and festive activities, East Village is the perfect place to get into the festive spirit! To book onto a Makers Workshop please click here.
