Just met up with Kristina of Makerhood, a not-for-profit initiative to promote local makers and create a website that lets people buy things made in their neighbourhood. This is not only about art and crafts – it’s also food, furniture, clothes and other locally produced items.
As well as helping online trading, the aim is also to hold workshops and physical meetings for local makers and buyers to meet face to face and share ideas and experiences.
The website is still being tested and will probably be launched next month. I’ve agreed to help out with this as well as writing about local makers. So if you live in Brixton, Herne Hill, Stockwell or Camberwell and would like to be featured, get in touch!
