Preview night, Tuesday 11th December 2012
This evening Creative Clerkewell gathered together a diverse group of designers to launch the 2012 Christmas pop-up shop at Craft Central, St John’s Square. We demonstrated how to create a door wreath, using natural Norman stems with berries and pine-cones to decorate. The audience were very appreciative and asked a range of questions about the creative process and the technical skills required to make this traditional decoration.
Jo Davies, who makes the most elegant ceramic vases allowed us to display our flowers in in her new collection. We also loved the ceramics crafted by Ikuko Iwamoto, and the funky floral designs for fabrics and china by Kate Clarke.
Jewellery by Amanda Li Hope attracted a lot of attention, her Fair Trade collection is both unique and stylish; and we loved Laura’s Loom Howgill range of gorgeously soft and luxurious woollen garments direct from the mills of Cumbria.
A big thanks to Charlene of Creative Clerkenwell for making this all possible. Your industrious planning and presentation really paid off.
