A hidden gem in West Hampstead opens its doors to reveal beautifully crafted festive gifts.
Earlier this year, the 75 artists and makers who inhabit Kingsgate Workshops’ ramshackle Victorian warehouse held their annual Open Studios. It was so successful they’ve opted for a festive edition –this time it’s all about the presents.
There’ll be beautiful handmade unique gifts available, ranging from Steve Buck’s ceramic decorations, to Beverly Bryon’s fused glass creations.
Explore Christmas decorations with a twist by Naori Priestly
Kingsgate Workshops has a uniquely varied ecology of contemporary artists, craftspeople and designer-makers – so this won’t be your standard Christmas craft fair. Interspersed between the studios, themselves nooks and crannies filled with the fascinating flotsam and jetsam of artistic life, will be interventions and installations by artist and Kingsgate Studio Holder Naori Priestly. Naori is keeping the details a closely-guarded secret, but we’ve had a sneak peek at the plans - get ready for a luxury winter grotto with an enchanted forest feel, and a slightly eerie twist.
Join us on Thursday evening for our grand opening, with festive appetisers in our magical fairy-lit courtyard.
Late Night Shopping
We’re opening late on Friday. Pop down after work and get cracking on your Christmas shopping, with decorations, gifts, stocking fillers, Christmas cards and invites all in one place.
