We Make London events and fairs are exclusively designed to showcase the work of British designer-makers, offering them the opportunity to affordably sell and promote their work to a wider market. 

Founded by a group of like-minded designer-makers, headed by designer-maker and events guru, Mary McDermott, We Make London is passionate about uniting buyers with designer-makers, who offer something unique and personal, in today’s fast paced world of throw away mass production. 

As a designer-maker herself, Mary knows only too well the difficulties designers face in finding affordable, high quality events at which to sell their products and We Make London's events are designed to address this problem.

We Make London events and fairs happen throughout the year and are announced here on our events page and over on the blog.
