Art Trail update and another date for the diary.....

A brilliant Indian summer day brought what seemed like most of E17 to the Market on Sunday 12th September, as well as many other E postcodes (plus a Wimbledon one……..)

The E17 Art Trail guide allowed so many visitors to work their way around the trail and then take part in our event during the afternoon (tea and cakes in the “yard”, and thirty designers to chat to); the light vibe of the Rose and Crown Singers gently serenaded us with “Scarborough Fair” and many other favourites. It all added up to a lovely day which we hope inspired many and made people realise the enormous talent that the borough has to offer. See you next time!

Next event:

E17 Designers Market: a gifted and talented seasonal event

Introducing E17 Designers 'i am inspired'....

i am inspired is a joint venture between Kirsten, an artist and graphic designer, and Sharon, a textile artist. Together they combine their talents and expertise in their differing fields to produce artworks, felted pieces and lovely knick knacks. Both are typical Gemini's so their work can take inspiration from multiple sources often creating sets of work that is completely different from each other. Their favourite place in Walthamstow is the William Morris Gallery and the local market both for their abundance of colour and pattern.

To see more of their work go to their website
or to see what's inspiring them at the moment check out their blog
can't wait until the next market then visit their Etsy store
