March 13, 2012 Kensington and Chelsea today
The Arts & Crafts market is returning to Portobello Road following a major investment by the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea.
A dozen traders selling a variety of mostly handmade goods including fine art and photography, upcycled denim and vintage vinyl, drawing and illustration, jewellery, handicrafts, stoneware and more have taken advantage of a special introductory offer aimed at injecting vitality into the newly-refurbished square between Basing Street and Portobello Road (`Portobello Square’).
Arts & Crafts traders include award-winning photographer Steve Ullathorne, Corinne White of Eco-rinne, and Karl Hildebrandt of Carlos the Jackal. Later this summer, on Saturday 30 June, the market will welcome Market Enterprise Launch Pad winner Emily Ellen Dell to her first day selling original `Girl on a Swing’ canvases and souvenirs featuring unique drawings and paintings of many local and London landmarks.
The market will have its official relaunch on Saturday 24 March but ahead of this, on Saturday 17 March (and on 24 March), it will host a pop-up bookbinding workshop by Make, Thrift London. Interested members of the public can find details on how to book a place by following @rbkc_markets on Twitter, liking www.facebook.com/rbkcmarkets or visiting www.rbkc.gov.uk/streetmarkets.
