SOUTH LONDON MAKER FESTIVAL
Over 200 people visited this one day, pop-up marketplace, showcasing and offering direct sales for independent designers and upholsterers’ work by providing them with a key space at the heart of the high street.
The brainwave for the event came from a regular attendee at the Station Hall Sewing Group, showing how the space provides a platform for individuals to bring their ideas to life.
I wanted to help upholsterers explain to the public what they do, and to give them a way to meet new customers and share their skills. Station Hall was the perfect setting and we felt like we were part of the high street for the day.
