A couple of weeks ago I went to Renegade Craft fair in London with some of my favourite creative pals. If you’ve never been to Renegade before it is held in the Truman Brewery on Brick Lane & showcases some of the best designer makers around! Renegade hold fairs in various cities across America & makers from the states often travel over for the London fair. As my second visit to Renegade I felt much less overwhelmed as I knew what to expect & I had an idea of who I want to visit for the all important purchases! So here are a few of my favourite makers & stalls from the day…
A stall at the top of my list to visit on the day was Duck Ceramics. They make the most beautiful glazed ceramic vessels I think I have ever seen, I mean just look at them! I didn’t buy on the day but I definitely have a few on my Christmas list, fingers crossed!
Toby from I like cats
was there with his cat related patches, pins, jumpers you name it!
This way to the circus
with their painted plant pots & greenery hit us as soon as we arrived. I’ve loved following them for a while now & am still trying to decide which pot to go for!
The Basket Room
work with small craft collectives in Africa to create beautiful hand woven bags & baskets & their stand was so inviting. I’m a sucker for anything woven!
I first saw the work of Sarah Matthews
at Renegade last year & have loved following her ever since. I love the pastel colour palette & the intricacy of her work is just amazing.
It was great to finally meet Kim from Finest Imaginary
& get a sneak peek at her new Palm Springs range of acrylic jewellery. I snapped up a pink crystal enamel pin too to add to my growing collection.
Always a treat to see fellow Cambridge creative, Jo from Hello Sunshine
. Her cheery stand looked fab & look at her awesome Christmas pins!!
Always a treat to chat with the lovely Matt & Lucy from Basil & Ford
& have a gander at their prints. I just love everything they do & am the proud owner of a couple of pieces already so managed to resit on the day.
I snapped up a Spiced Apple candle from Hopscotch
candles which is going to be my festive scent at home this year.
Another definite visit was to Rosa Pietsch
because her resin jewellery is just stunning. Another addition to the Christmas list!
As one of the first designer makers I ever followed it is always a pleasure to catch up with Katie from Oh Squirrel
. It’s always a little tricky though as her stand is always packed! I picked up a print & some pencils, of course!
And finally is the glittery joy that is Puptart
! Catching up with Hannah is always a dream & I picked up the item top of my list for the day, a glittery bumbag! I can’t wait to rock it at all my festive fairs this year!
And here’s the haul…
Renegade Craft Fair is definitely one of my favourites fairs to visit in the year & it was so lovely this year to catch up with so many creative pals on the day. Roll on 2017!
