Renegade craft fair London

Last weekend, the Renegade Craft Fair came back to London for the second time. We went to get some crafty inspiration and came back with some wonderful bits and bobs. I had been waiting for it for months and it didn’t disappoint! As last year, it was held at the Old Truman’s Brewery in East London and it was full of beautiful and interesting stalls and a few workshop stations. Dangerous place, the Renegade Craft Fair that is, you’ll want everything!

One of the workshop stations was a free friendship bracelet making station, sponsored by The Make Lounge. London’s one-stop shop for practical creativity, featuring contemporary craft workshops.

The talented artist Suzi Mclaughlin was at the craft fair teaching peeps how to make this wonderful paper roses!

Every stall was like a mini treasure box, full of unique quirky things. Some had flown half way around the world with their suitcases full of goodies to be able to attend and show them to London. We loved Butterscotch and Beesting‘s circus themed stall.

This handmade cut outs by Rosie and the Boys are sooo detailed! I have tried in the past to make cut outs like that and it doesn’t normally have a happy ending. I can really appreciate the craftsmanship put into this.

The wonderful Oh hello friend! was also at the fair. I wanted to buy half of what they had on display! Some gorgeous crafting materials and accessories.

The illustrator Debbie Greenaway had some super cute cushion pin houses and badges. Don’t forget to check out her Etsy shop for some awesome present ideas!

I love a bit of balcony-gardening and these ceramic pots and sculptures from Atelier Stella would bring life to any grey city balcony.

We had a great time at this year’s Renegade Craft Fair and I personally can’t wait to see what they will bring us next year. On the meantime, we’ve got plenty of crafts to get on with and to hunt down!
