Creative Christmas to pop-up in Clerkenwell

Creative Clerkenwell, run by Charlene Lam, is to curate a design-led festive pop-up shop at Milliken’s Berry Street flooring showroom and other spaces around Clerkenwell. The pop-up shop at Milliken will be open for business from 4th through to the 8th December 2017, with a late night opening on Wednesday 6th December. The unique shopping experience, in Milliken’s stylish and expansive Clerkenwell showroom, will be a celebration of colour and pattern, featuring special one-off gifts.   

The work of a hand-picked selection of designers and makers from a broad range of disciplines will be on sale for the design-savvy Clerkenwell audience. At the Milliken showroom UK makers work will be on sale and there will be a gift-wrapping and card-writing station for the ease of visitors.

Featured designers include:

  1. Sally McGill who is a painter turned potter based in North London. She produces colourful, hand-decorated plates, jugs and vases with cheerful mid-century modern influenced patterns.
  2. Corinne Hamak, a fashion designer turned jeweller who designs and makes versatile, playful pieces for modern women. Clerkenwell based Corinne is a Central Saint Martins graduate.
  3. South London based Japanese designer and maker Maiko Dawson who designs and makes colourful leather bags and accessories. Maiko trained in shoe-making at Cordwainer’s College and also makes custom leather shoes.
  4. Clerkenwell-based architect Charis Tsang, who creates exquisite linocut prints and cards under the name of Monokraum.  The linocut images are meticulously hand carved, inked and hand pulled.
  5. Clerkenwell based Central Saint Martins graduate Jenny Parker London, who designs and makes elegant, geometric jewellery inspired by movement.
  6. Kate Jones who makes knitwear accessories (scarves, hats and gloves) and soft furnishings (cushions and throws) on a hand-powered domestic knitting machine from 100% fine quality wool sourced from Yorkshire, England and County Donegal, Ireland.

The pop-ups are being organised as part of ‘A Creative Clerkenwell Christmas’, a series of installations and pop-ups in Clerkenwell, curated by The Creative Edit, presented by Creative Clerkenwell, hosted by Milliken and other neighbourhood spaces.
