Crafty Fox Uncovered Peckham – Meet the makers

 Crafty Fox Market was started in 2010 by Sinead Koehler together with her husband Stephan and the original aim was to host a one-off, good quality event attracting plenty of shoppers which would be affordable for designer-makers. Since then it has become in institution between designers-makers providing them  with opportunities to sell their work during events taking place seasonally around London featuring hand-picked stalls, workshops and DJs.

Our favourite section of the markets is Crafty Fox Uncovered,  a scheme that supports makers who have been in business for less than 12 months. Applications are accepted three times a year, in line with the main market applications.  New makers can benefit from half price stalls and access to advice from established traders. The Uncovered area of the market can be found on the 2nd floor in the Brixton and Peckham venues and on the lower ground floor at the Geffrye Museum.

Have a look below at who we “uncovered” last Sunday in Peckham
