Made in Clerkenwell

Craft Central’s Made in Clerkenwell open studios and selling event returns this month, with more than 100 UK designer-makers showing off their wares.

The four-day event is held at Craft Central’s Victorian buildings, which will be opened up so members of the public can meet the designers in their studios and find out about the work they’ve created.

It’s accurately billed by the organisers as the perfect opportunity to see the process of making – and get your Christmas shopping done at the same time.
