The Makers Christmas Market
A seasonal market celebrating the best of London independent brands and makers.
The Makers Christmas Market brings together a community of our favourite London makers and creators - all unique in their own space but similar in the values of quality, purpose and craft.
We'll welcome sewists, jewellers, ceramicists, artists and designers to exhibit their hand-crafted pieces. And coffee, wine and food will be served up by some of London's finest tastemakers.
