Crafty Fox After Dark

Thank you to everyone that came along to the Crafty Fox Night market in Brixton last Thursday evening and made it such a success.   We were delighted to welcome over 1000 guests to the Dogstar, who came to check out the fantastic array of handmade and vintage treasures on display.

You will find some photos here and can listen to music from the night here.   You will also find a lovely blog about it written by Nicola From Streatham here and another by A London A Day here

The Crafty Fox Night School on the first floor was very popular with visitors trying out a range of crafts and leaving with their own handrafted treasure. Thanks again to Crafty Pint, Stars n'Scars, Viv Moriatry, Stitch Balham and Dreamy Me Brixton for teaching us their skills. 

Crafty Fox Pop Up at The Thames Festival - 10th & 11th September

We are currently working hard in preparation for the Crafty Fox Market at the Mayor’s Thames Festival where we will be taking part in the Craft Trail.   This weekend, come and find the Crafty Fox den, nestled between the trees, close to the main festival stage beside the Tate Modern.We will be there on both days from midday - 10pm. We have range of Crafy workshops planned (full details coming soon), facepainters, DJ's and live outdoor art by Jimbobart as well as an inspiring array of handmade stalls. 

The Craft Trail 

The Craft Trail is “a group of independent craft collectives who have joined forces to promote handmade crafts at the Mayor’s Thames Festival.”
Thames Festival visitors  will be able to follow a beautiful map (hand drawn by Mike Hall who will be selling his wares as part of the Crafty Fox market) and discover the huge variety of handmade goods on offer at the Festival.   The Map will highlight where each collective will be within the festival. There will be a loyalty system, where the public can participate in free activities at each collective; the first 50 to complete an activity at each place will receive a goody bag brimming with handmade goodies. You can pick up your map at The Crafty Fox next to the Tate Modern and wind along the banks of the river where you will find We Make London next to HMS Belfast and Craft HQ (Sanna Panda, of Cabbages and Kings, Craft Guerrilla) next to City Hall.
