We’re popping up 22-24 May for Clerkenwell Design Week 2018! Part of the CDW2018 Fringe, The Creative Edit pop-up shop for design enthusiasts in collaboration with Creative Clerkenwell will feature independent designers and makers, as well as local creatives.

Clerkenwell Design Week, now in its 9th year, is a much-anticipated London event for design lovers, architects and creative tourists. Contained to Clerkenwell and its immediate EC1 vicinity, the festival is walkable (unusual for sprawling London) and enjoyable for industry professionals and casual visitors alike. Showrooms, studios and shops put on special events, and installations and exhibitions pop up all over. Normally quiet Clerkenwell buzzes with activity!

This is the 8th year we’ll be taking part in CDW, previously under the name of Creative Clerkenwell, now as The Creative Edit.

Designers and products will be selected by curator Charlene C Lam and co-presented by our sister brand Creative Clerkenwell.

Taking over Clerkenwell’s newest pop-up and event space, we’ll be in Basement84, downstairs from Easton Regal hairdressing right on Clerkenwell Road and St John’s Square. The beautiful building was a former printworks.

Please note that because the pop-up space is down a flight of stairs, this space is unfortunately not wheelchair-accessible.
