Renegade Craft Fair, London 2011

This weekend I went to the Renegade Craft Fair on Brick Lane. It was their first ever London event and it was brilliant. Its one of the best craft fairs I have been to in a long time. Every single stool was full of really nice handmade things. All the crafts were modern and really reasonably priced. I had to hold back the temptation to spend lots of money.

Stools

There was a free felt making class courtsey of The Make Lounge. The Make Lounge do a variety of evening classes that I have always fancied doing. Hopefully one day I will get round to doing a real one :) It was my first attempt at felting and I quite enjoyed it although the little fox I made must have taken an hour in total. Felting involves jabbing a needle repeatedly into hair like material until it starts to matt together. You shape your creation by turning the matted felt and making some areas denser than others.
