New Makers Market in Tulse Hill

The Hub

(formally the James Wilson Coffee Shop)

As I’ve mentioned in a previous blog post (briefly), I’m part of a new makers market in Tulse hill.

It’s being organised by Lorraine Duncan otherwise known as @knitwizzneedles who also runs a community knitting and crochet group on Wednesdays – you can visit her google page here.

so far there are several Rock Paper Scissors London group members who sell at L’Arche in West Norwood and at the Coffee Shop itself but there are also others who sell Skin Care items, hearty food and children’s clothing, toys, wall art, home decoration and weird creatures (mine) and I usually have a few other items that I make so please pop along if you can :-)

They are open to new makers as a few didn’t make it and we need more to help give a good range of work by locals for locals (and anyone who wants to visit :-D)

Here’s a few photos I took of the 2nd market which was my first – the next makers market will be on the 6th June – I will add more photos to the gallery (click on images to visit) after each market so I hope to be able to show a whole range of work.

I just had a small table as it was my first go and I need more practice 😀

Rock Paper Scissors Artist Collective – version 2

I’ve mentioned that I am part of the Rock Paper Scissors group of Artist and Handmade crafters who are members of The Open Works and Makerhood Lambeth.

In November 2014 we started at L’Arche (next to St Luke’s Church in West Norwood) with 20 members selling their designs, artwork and craft items which went rather well.

This will continue in February with a few new people but the project has expanded and now there is a version 2!

RPS 2 is the James Wilson Cafe (name subject to change):

RunnyCustard: Rock Paper Scissors 2 at James Wilson Cafe Tulse Hill and RPS 2 (SE27) at James Wilson Cafe, Tulse Hill, London
RPS 2 (SE27) at James Wilson Cafe, Tulse Hill, London
There is a plan to rename the cafe (public vote or competition?) and redecorate as it still looks like a Letting Agents!
It is a community space for workshops, meetings, freelancers, lone home workers and more… so including local makers and artists helps the community support each other. (free Wifi!)

Some Suggestions made so far are:

  • Creative workshops
  • Exhibition
  • Event music etc
  • Saturday makers market
  • Holistic therapies

The Window Display in the window.
The makers are also helping with the workshops so go check out The Open Works website to find out more.  http://www.theopenworks.org/rock-paper-scissors
RPS 2 (SE27) at James Wilson Cafe, Tulse Hill, London

The Cafe also has a website: http://www.jameswilsoncoffee.co.uk/

Here’s a few more images – more handmade/artwork is to be added soon and an official ‘launch’ in a few weeks time – I will update with more information when I can! click on the slideshow to see them on my main website.
