Street Photography is growing in popularity and at its heart Street Photography is about the well captured moment on the streets. “ You never know what you are going to photograph when you set out, that is one of the challenges of Street photography. You are looking for the decisive or elusive moment when something happens or strikes you on the street. There can be humour, pathos, banality, beauty and ugliness in everyday encounters on the street”

Tues, Wed, Thur: 10am-9pm
Tel: 020 85213211e

In the first hour 146 people came, who had never been to an E17
Designers event before.
We had some great comments from visitors:
"I have been to the art and craft events at Lauderdale House
(Highgate) and the quality of design and making here is much better.."
"The designers have all upped their game in terms of presentation-
every stall looks great"
"The website is a great tool, all the images look lovely and it means
that they can be seen not just at events....it makes me want to come
again and again to see who is here."
"I have been coming for three years and this is the best selection
"It's such lovely work-does everyone make a living doing this?"
I could just about get to some of the stalls to show you more of the great work being produced and the cakes had almost run out by the time I got there but here's some pics to show you what you missed out on…

Take Victoria Road and recycle history!
Victoria Road isn't only a place in Walthamstow.
It's also a design concept by two young artists living in the area.
The couple creates a quirky range of homeware, the most striking fusion of tradition and tomorrow. Their handmade Eco- products echo the beauty of vintage pieces.
Some of the pieces are interpretations of great designs from the past. Others were removed from their original context to serve a different purpose and earn their new place in the contemporary setting. Both styles could add timeless glamour to classic or modern interiors.
Victoria Road is recycling and up-cycling your way from the past into the future. The materials are reused and so is the design. All the products are created by reusing a design concept from the past. Each item is unique and threads the added dimensions of your memories in.
As a small business that relies on skilled handcraft, customization is Victoria Road's strength. Bespoke designs and unique commissions are their favourite challenge.
Just think of your loft! How many lovely pieces could be waiting to be transformed into something that you can actually use? Something truly unique that would make a great gift or you could impress your guests with.
