At Makerhood we love the amazing Women of the World festival – an annual celebration of women and girls at the Southbank Centre with so many wonderful activities, talks and events. If you haven’t been, check it out – it’s absolutely fantastic and there is something for everyone.

We’ve been privileged to showcase the brilliance, talent and skills of makers in Lambeth and Camberwell since the market’s launch. Six fantastic makers are showing and selling their work this year – see below. Come find us and say hello – entry to the market is free!
