Steeped in history and character, London’s East End is a place where a new, old trend is on the rise. Published on the success of Hoxton Mini Press’s ongoing series of art publications, ‘Makers of East London’ is a brand-new hardback that celebrates the rebirth of craft-based work and the artistic dynamism of one of the liveliest parts of the city, East London.
Hoxton Mini Press’s choice to portray East London’s excitement and diversity. ‘Makers of East London’ is a comprehensive 336-page tome that takes us on a fresh journey across East London to examine traditional crafts through exploratory studio visits. The book comprises each artist’s space, techniques, disciplines, inspirations, and the elements these craftspeople use to create a new chapter for the growing creative, tight-knit community.
Written by design journalist and content consultant Katie Treggiden, the book also features a collection of stunning photography by Charlotte Schreiber. ‘Makers of East London’ is a definitive modern reference in the field of craft and creativity. It’s where history meets the future and is definitely worth saving for future generations.
