Made in Clerkenwell - We're all set for open studios!

2 buildings. 90 Designers. The Ultimate Shopping Treat! 16-19 May 2013

It’s that time of year again – we’re all set to open our doors for you to explore our two Victorian buildings! Start your visit in Clerkenwell Green and find St John’s Square just 2 minutes away. Whether you’ve got an hour or a whole day, mingle with the makers in the studios where they work their magic. One ticket allows unlimited access over 4 days, including Thursday’s launch event and Friday’s late night shopping.

Avoid the high street and opt for handmade! Shop for fashion, jewellery, accessories, ceramics, printmaking, illustration and interior products by 90+ selected UK designers. Choose a gift, commission a unique piece, find a bespoke design service or just browse... this shopping treat is topped off by meeting the maker.

Here's a sneaky peek at the covetable craft and design products for sale at Made in Clerkenwell this May...

We’re famous for great jewellery design at CC - this May, adorn yourself with Sonia Cheadle, Sarah Herriot, Amy Keeper, Oxx, Amanda Li Hope, De Anna Kiernan and Mark Nuell (amongst other big names!). Continuing the fashion theme, milliner to the stars Katherine Elizabeth is on hand with vintage-inspired hats and Kate Jones will be showing her luxury handmade knitwear.

Once you’ve decorated yourself, why not focus on your home? Covetable interior products include Ikuko Iwamoto, Janet Stahelin Edmondson and Makiko Nakamura’s breathtakingly intricate ceramics, Michelle Mason’s bold interior products, Helen Beard’s hand-illustrated characters on hand-thrown porcelain and spot your favourite London street in Vic Lee’s unmistakable prints.
