Origin Craft Fair 23 - 29 Sept / The fab 4

I wanted to wish four fantastic makers who I had the pleasure of supporting and mentoring through the Crafts Council Next Move scheme the best of luck for Origin which takes place this year in a new venue of Old Spitafields Market and only for one week. It will be interesting to see how it will be received in this new part of town and being part of LDF. Part of me feels that there is already far to much to see at the London Design Festival and that I wish Origin had stayed put in October plus I did love the previous venue of Somerset House. But change can be good and I fully understand why they have come under the umbrella of the festival and the marketing machine. The LDF just gets bigger and bigger!! Anyway I digress. What I wanted to say was if you have never been to Origin go, you will not be disappointed. It is always a truly inspirational visit and one that I never miss. Do check out these fab four.
