Turning Earth Ceramics Fair at Hoxton Square Market: Saturdays until 7 July 2018
Hoxton Square Market is a new weekly market launched on June 2nd that will feature farmers and food producers alongside high quality locally-made crafts and ceramics from East LondonÂ’s trendsetting Turning Earth studios.
The new Â‘farmers and makersÂ’ market will bring makers together in a collective celebration of Â‘slow livingÂ’, an umbrella concept that draws together artisanally-produced food with handcrafts and popular Â‘mindfulÂ’ activities like yoga and community gardening.
To launch the market, fifteen Turning Earth ceramicists will set up shop each week over the summer, alongside makers working in other craft disciplines, produce stalls, microbreweries, fermenters, street food vendors and entertainers. Free classes and performances will be put on throughout the day with a range of activities on the bill specifically for kids.
About Turning Earth: Turning Earth is a pioneering open-access ceramics studio that is revolutionising participation in ceramics in the UK. Established in 2013, it now caters to 700 makers each month, all at various stages in their making journey. Thousands of people travel from across the country to attend Turning EarthÂ’s quarterly maker markets. The most recent event at the Barbican Conservatory in March attracted an hour long queue throughout the day; a feat that took even its hosts by surprise.
Turning Earth founder, Tallie Maughan says: Â“The mushrooming of interest in our makers markets reflects the superstar status of some of our artists on platforms like Instagram, and the resurgence of interest in buying one of a kind products directly from the person that made them. In an age where almost everything is available to buy, people care more and more the impact of their purchasing decisions.
