As you may be aware we have had a few months break this year, after a hectic year last year with a successful pop up shop, The Thames Festival and our Christmas fair we decided to take the time at the beginning of the year to plan some exciting projects.
We have some exciting events coming up, the first we announced yesterday, a marketplace at this years Lollibop, we will also be taking part in this years Thames Festival, details will be announced in the next few weeks, so make sure you are signed up to our mailing list to receive the information. We also have two Christmas events planned, and who knows maybe some other projects in between.
We look forward to working with and supporting such amazing designers again for the rest of the year.
We are very excited about our new project and the opportunity we are offering to designers.
What's the project?:
We are putting together a book. This will be a 200 page hard back book (160mm x 160mm square).
The book will be an inspirational guide to handmade in London. It will profile designer/ makers based in London and will be split in to 5 sections:
- North London
- South London
- East London
- West London and
- Central London.
We are inviting designers to apply to take part in the book.
How much does it cost and what do you get?:
The cost for each designer is £100. For this each designer will get a whole page (160mm x 160mm) which will consist of:
- 2 large product images
- A Bio on the designer and the designer's work
- The designer's contact details and website details.
Designers will be featured in a minimum of 1000 books (the initial print run of the book). We Make London will print more if the initial run sells quickly and more are needed. Value-wise, for each designer that works out at 10p per book to be included (£100/ 1000 books).
Will I be in good company?
