The creative side of London, makers market

The Creative Side

of London

"The creative pulse of London's vibrant cultural landscape found its beating heart in 2019 with the inception of 'The Creative Side of London.' Born from the collective aspiration to foster a welcoming, cost-effective, and inclusive space for artisans within the borough of Waltham Forest and its environs, this initiative stands as a testament to the power of community-driven creativity. From its humble beginnings, it has blossomed into a hub where makers converge, ideas flourish, and collaborations spark, enriching the fabric of our local artistic tapestry."
