Jimbobart at Clerkenwell Design Week

We very much enjoyed our visit to Clerkenwell Design Week last night. There was such a buzz in the area and lots of interesting things to look at. When we arrived at the amazing Farmiloe building, we made a bee-line for Etsy's space where Crafty Fox artist Jimbobart had been busy doing a 'live-draw' of a bear in the bath. As you can see below, he had made really good progress and Mr Bear was looking very comfy! It was good to see so many people coming to check out Etsy's selection of talented illustrators which included Jamie Milk and Julia Pott

This stunning fox caught our eye along with some beautifully made furniture from Young & Norgate

If you missed Clerkenwell Design week this time, I can highly recommend a visit next year. It's a free event with lots to discover. I only wish we had more time to check out more of the exhibitions.

The Fox Cub

The Crafty Fox has been a little bit quiet since our Spring Market back in March.  As some of you may have already noticed then, we are expecting our own little cub, due at the end of June.  

We will be focusing on our new arrival over the Summer but will be up and running again with some fantastic Crafty Fox Christmas Markets in December.   These will take place at our usual den at the Dogstar in the heart of Brixton.  We are still working on the exact dates but will let you know as soon as possible.

 The call for stall holders will go out in September via our mailing list so if you are interested in a stall, please sign up now. You will find the sign-up box on the right hand sidebar of this blog.
