Every design event worth its salt has a pop-up shop these days, and Clerkenwell Design Week is no exception. The Creative Clerkenwell Pop-up Shop took up residence in the Corner Shop, 21 Clerkenwell Green, for the duration of this week's festivities, selling a range of small-scale handcrafted goods including jewellery, soft accessories, vases, storage objects and original prints.
The theme of the shop was 'Collected in Clerkenwell', with many of the pieces upcycled from materials gathered from showrooms and businesses around the local area.
Surface designer Hazel Stark's geometric textiles and prints were a favourite of ours, and during our visit she was laying out a new batch of prints, just dried after completing the screenprinting process.
