Meet the Makers - Celebrating Craft & Design Month - May 2017

Meet the Maker Market, in celebration of Craft & Design Month.
Potters, jewellers, knitters, felters, printmakers, artists, wood turners and metalworkers and more take part in a unique Craft & Design Meet the Maker Market.

Workshops and demonstrations daily.

Richard Chown Jeweller:

A jewellery designer maker based on the South-East London/ Kent borders. I offer a one-to-one design consultation service for wedding and engagement rings, either sculpted, mokume gane or traditional, from the first sketch to finished piece.

I always wanted to be a sculptor and making people's wedding rings seemed like the most personal way of doing it. I worked as an art teacher for a few years after studying blacksmithing and silversmithing at art college.

Customers inspire me! Meeting them, getting to know them, their quirks and what's important to them.

I chose Greenwich Market because it is the nicest local market to me and I seem to relate to the people who go there.  I've been trading at Greenwich since 2007.

Alice & The Thimble:

'Everything I sell is handmade either by myself or my Dad - the cards, cushions,bunting, lavender bags, decorations and brooches.   I'm hugely influenced by vintage toys and old fashioned cards and gifts. One of the most popular items I sell are the wooden dogs on wheels. These are all hand painted. You can order a dog on wheels to look just like your dog! I love meeting new customers at themarket - and their dogs of course!'
