This weekend, over 30 artists and designers will be setting out their stalls in a large indoor space within Faircharm Trading Estate, Creekside, Deptford SE8 3DX.
Faircharm Fair is open to the public on
Saturday 4th December (11am-7pm)
and Sunday 5th December (11am-5pm)
Hervé Boscher – HB jewellery
Creekside Artists – Creek Boutique
Will Hammond Designs
London Kills Me
Cor Blimey Arts
Mason’s Catering café
A varied selection of art and craft will be on show and for sale including paintings, drawings, prints, textiles, handmade books, corseted eveningwear, jewellery, recycled accessories and upcycled furniture. It will be a great opportunity to buy original, one-off or limited edition pieces direct from local artists and designers.
There will also be artist representatives from several arts organisations and charities including Creekside Artists and Cor Blimey Arts (artist-led cooperatives with studios based in Faircharm Trading Estate) and London Youth Support Trust (a locally based charity helping disadvantaged young people who were previously unemployed to build sustainable businesses).
FAIRCHARM FAIR is coordinated by Creekside Artists and coincides with several other events along Creekside, including Open Studios at Creekside Artists, Cor Blimey Arts and Cockpit Arts and exhibitions at Core Gallery and APT Gallery. It is also part of a wider local event titled ‘GIFTED: A weekend of art and design in Deptford.’
Drawing activities, music and a pop-up café will add to the festive atmosphere, and Creekside Artists will be serving mulled wine in their studios throughout the weekend. Admission is free and all are welcome! At the weekend, it’s possible to park within Faircharm Trading Estate but the area is also very well connected with good bus, rail and DLR transport links.
