Description

Winter Open Weekend and the Designer Maker Fair open with a festive reception on Friday 22nd November 6 - 8pm
and continue Saturday 23rd November 12 - 5pm

The Designer Maker Fair is Kingsgate Workshops’ annual festive craft and design sale. This year, the contemporary artists hosted at Kingsgate Workshops will be opening their spaces too, to highlight the diversity and range of creative and cultural production in the West Hampstead studio complex.

Director Dan Howard Birt says-
“Kingsgate Workshops is unique in its mix of different practitioners – not only is there a real range of craft and design, both traditional and modern, but we also host contemporary and fine artists whose practices include video, performance, and sculpture as well as painting. Each studio space really does have something unique and fascinating inside.”
