From studios to shops to showrooms, Shoreditch is an ecosystem of creative enterprise and activity. Join The Creative Edit for guided tours of tucked away creative spaces and an inside view of East London design highlights.

Part of the Shoreditch Design Triangle

Tours will be led by curator and creative business mentor Charlene C Lam, who will share her insights into London’s evolving creative landscape.

A New Yorker who lived in East London for 8+ years curating pop-up shops and working with independent designers and makers, Charlene will guide you to some of her favourite spots, from makers’ studios to hidden gems.

Tours include candid conversation about making a creative living in London and beyond — ideal if you’re an aspiring or emerging designer!

Leave the navigating of East London’s tangled streets to us: Spend less time being lost and more time being inspired!

Meeting point: Restoration Station on Shoreditch High Street. Run by the addiction recovery charity Spitalfields Crypt Trust (SCT), Restoration Station is a not-for-profit social enterprise that teaches people in recovery the skills to restore vintage furniture.
