[What’s On]: We Make London at Camden Lock Markets

892235_10200703947498443_554630354_oI’ve always been a big fan of Camden Town for all it’s chaos and eclectic mix of people and culture, and not forgetting the diverse range of markets that include crafts, clothing, bric-a-brac, vintage treasures and street food. If you haven’t ever been – you must! Mind you, it can be a bit overcrowded with tourists (and you may find that some places exploit this)  but it’s for this unique experience that you find Camden Town now a must-go destination in London. And if you’re into street photography….well, you couldn’t ask for a better backdrop! :)

So this Friday I took a stroll around Camden Lock Markets to  check out the new handmade market stalls organised by We Make London. They are a creative organisation who’s aims are to bring together talented designer-makers in the UK and showcase their work at craft fairs and events. This was their first market at Camden for what will become a more regular thing – running on the first and third Friday of each month from April to September…..so if you do fancy checking them out then pencil these dates in as I know for a fact that they would appreciate your support! Anyhoo, I got chatting to a few friendly and talented ladies that afternoon – including the lovely Viktorija of AndSmile who I had bought a couple of brooches from on Etsy a few weeks back so it was really nice to finally put a face to a name! Oh and I couldn’t help buy a set of teapot+teacup earrings from her too….seriously I do love her stuff and if you look at her Etsy shop (or my photos below), you’ll see why!!! I treated myself to a couple more handcrafted goodies; a vintage floral button badge by Celia Reid,  a hand-painted bunny brooch by Lizzes Beautiful Art (I know, I do love my brooches!) and an adorable giant panda illustration by Sarah of Fur Feathers And Tails which I must get framed asap! It really was an absolute pleasure meeting them all and no doubt bump into them again at another event! Here’s a peek at some of the photos I captured that afternoon which includes my purchases! :) xx DSC_2588 web DSC_2582 web DSC_2583 web
