Turning Earth Leyton Midsummer Market
June 24 @ 11:00 am – June 25 @ 5:00 pm
On 24/25 June, Turning Earth will hold a huge artisan ceramics market in our members’ studio on Argall Avenue, Leyton E10. There will be over 100 artists selling their hand-made ceramic wares over the course of the weekend. Come and stroll around the beautifully converted industrial building just down the road from Lea Bridge station and browse through the work of our talented members. Being regularly featured in Time Out and the Evening Standard and popular now all over London, the market is an East London gem, with people coming from all over the capital to buy hand-made ceramics directly from the maker. With live music from local musician Zoot Lynam and locally made artisanal food sold alongside beautiful tableware and sculpture, it is all set to be a wonderful summer weekend – perfect for a day out!
The market will take place in our real-life working pottery studio. Aside from the many hand-made wonders on sale, visitors will be able to watch live demonstrations as our members will showcase their mesmerising skills on the potter’s wheel. If you want to get your hands on some clay, there will also be a have-a-go stall where you (and your children) can try it out for yourself. Give it a try, and if you like it, maybe come back and do a course!
Turning Earth’s Summer Market will again be part of the 11 Argall Ave Open Studios. The entire Argall Avenue industrial estate has undergone a dramatic transformation in recent years, with a wide variety of artisan businesses, including hand-made furniture to craft beer and sourdough baking.
