This spring and summer, the scene is set for a special We Make London Pop-up Boutique.
On Friday 10th May the doors of Unit 53 at the iconic Camden Lock will open for shoppers to discover a specially designed shop full of handmade delights. With two full months of shopping visitors will be able to purchase beautifully made items from the UK’s most talented designer makers.
The shop at Camden Lock is part of an on-going partnership with the Camden Lock team where we have joined forces to bring back the handmade element to Camden Lock. It is such an iconic and alternative corner of London that our passion and support for designers teamed with Camden’s artistic heritage sets an exciting summer ahead and a refreshing treat for local and shoppers, tourists and lovers of British made products.
Spend a sunny summer’s day this May and June, browsing over 30 handpicked designers, selling a wide range of wares from eco-friendly handmade gifts ideas to jewellery, fashion, graphic / fine art, bath and body, toys and children's clothing. Designers will then be rotated after the first month creating a fresh new look for the second month.
In true We Make style, throughout the two months there will also be a host of different craft activities, talks and workshop, as well as opportunities to meet the designer makers themselves.
Designers will be rotated each month to create a unique shopping experience.
The shop will be open on the 10th May. With an official launch party on the 16th May and a craft workshop day on the 17th May (see details below).
Launch Party: Join us on the 16th May from 5-9pm for some drinks to celebrate the opening of the shop. You will get a chance to met some of the lovely designers taking part.
Craft Workshops: We are working away on a series of workshops and talks in the shop, to kick of we have Sanna Panda and Friends and Craft Guerrilla running a lucky dip craft day on the 17th from 1pm -6pm.
You will be able to purchase lucky dip craft kits and create unique items here in the shop.
See you all there

As part of an ongoing partnership with Camden Lock Market we are very excited to announce that we will be setting up a special We Make London market in the Middle Yard at Camden Lock Market.
We will be there for 10 dates from April to September 2012.
The market will showcase some of the most talented designers in London and UK.
The special We Make London branded area will host 30 stalls on the first and third Friday of every month.
Last December, we took part in the series of Night Markets that Camden Lock hosted. We loved it (despite the cold December evening).
Beautiful handmade products surrounded by regular Camden Lock traders, live music, food..... it was a very festive affair.
This year, we were very honored when the lovely market team asked us to set up our own area within the Lock.
If you would like to take part in any of the dates of our market please complete the following online form and we will be in contact as soon as possible.
We look forward to seeing you there.
