Origin contemporary craft fair will take place at Old Spitalfields Market from 22 -28 September 2011. Works are 'Made not Manufactured.'

Origin offers a rare opportunity to see and buy a diverse range of high quality, original craft from over 200 makers in one convenient location. Disciplines range from ceramics, furniture, metalwork and glass, to fashion accessories, jewellery and knitwear.

I receive the Origin newsletter and their recent letter talks about 'Characterful Craft' which, as a character designer, is right up my street! There is loads of beautiful, eye catching work - especially Bristol based ceramicist SOPHIE WOODROW. Her delicate porcelain hybrid animals are not to be missed.

You can see more work at

or visit the Origin site

Also check out NINA FÜHRER's scarves. They are the ultimate in creature comfort! Hand knitted in merino wool and mohair, they are as sumptuous as a fox stole and much more humane.
