Get Living London is delighted to announce the return of its Christmas Makers Market in East Village London.
Following the success of the inaugural event last year, a handpicked selection of local makers are setting up shop for three weekends running in E20, complete with workshops to try your hand at making them yourself.
With everything from hot coffee and cocktails through to bobble hats, artisan leathers and wreath making classes there is something for everyone and is guaranteed to get you in the mood for Christmas.
This year the market, which focuses on hand-crafted goods, is inspired by “Hygge”, and is completely FREE entry. Hygge – the Danish art of living cosily – is all about savouring simple pleasures, nuturing and enjoying good times with great people, an ethos with considerable prominence in East Village. Visitors can expect all forms of cosiness and conviviality at the market, combining ambient interiors, entertainment, comfort food and fashion – the perfect way to fully infuse yourself with that Christmas spirit.
The annual market is set to be open on Saturdays and Sundays for three weekends running, with a selection of London artisans invited to showcase their products including Att Pynta, BLASTA, HENRIET, Briggs & Shears and Geo-Fleur.
The will run from 11am-6pm on Saturdays, and 11am-4pm on Sundays until December 11th. You can find it on West Park Walk in the heart of East Village, with easy access not only to the market but also to the vast array of independent makers dotted around East Village.
