Much has been made of this week’s Black Friday – supposedly the day most people start panicking their way into tackling the Christmas shopping.
Canny Craft Central has chosen this date to kick off their three day Made in Clerkenwell craft selling bonanza, which this year is to be spread across three buildings in the area.
The open studios event is organised in partnership with The Goldsmiths’ Centre, which opens its doors as an indoor design market for the first time this year. The other two venues are Craft Central’s own Victorian studio buildings.
Work by more than 150 designers will be on show in disciplines including homeware, print, furniture and jewellery design.

Patriotic types need look no further than to Ali Miller’s Great Britain tea set designs:

Made in Clerkenwell takes place at 21 Clerkenwell Green, EC1R, 33-35 St John’s Square EC1M & The Goldsmiths’ Centre, London EC1M from 29 November – 1 December
