The market continues at Big Sky studios next door, where an arch is being taken over by wood ware curators carve.london to showcase handmade functional wood work from some of the UK's most inspiring contemporary maker.

2018 Winter Markets

24/25 November: Turning Earth Hoxton, Arch 361-362 Whiston Road, London E2 8BW, (continuing next door at the connected arches at Big Sky Studios, Hows St)

8/9 December: Turning Earth Lea Valley, 11 Argall Avenue, Leyton E10 7QE
(nearest station Lea Bridge)

After a year's hiatus, Turning Earth's popular East London ceramics studios are once again opening their doors to the public over two major Winter Market events on 24/25 November and 8/9 December.

150 makers, two events
Now in it's fourth year, what was once an off-the-beaten track event involving a handful of our budding artists has now become a beloved institution for the East End's community of design-lovers. 150 of London's most exciting emerging makers - enabled to begin a career in ceramics out of Turning Earth's co-work studios in Hackney and Leyton - will sell their work from two of Turning Earth's East London centres across two weekends in the run-up to Christmas.

24-25th November, Hoxton
The first event, on the weekend of 24th and 25th November, takes place in the  flagship Turning Earth centre in the railway arches in Whiston Road in Hoxton. Turning Earth has teamed up with neighbouring arch residents Big Sky Studios to accommodate the large numbers of people that now regularly attend this popular event (and who queued patiently outside Barbican Conservatory for Turning Earth's last market there in March.) Additional space means Turning Earth can bring back some old faces, including beloved former members that began their journey at Turning Earth and whose businesses have since spread across the country.

8-9th December, Lea Bridge
Then on 8/9 December the new Turning Earth centre at 11 Argall Avenue, Leyton, will open its doors, where another set of artists will sell their products, alongside members of Turning Earth's  professional studios, In Production, London's first professional ceramics incubator, which now houses 22 full-time making businesses. Other companies in the Argall Ave area, including furniture makers ThinkFOUND, Uncommon Projects and A.White Workshop will also open their doors for the weekend.  

Live music
It wouldn't be a Turning Earth Market without an appearance from members of Balkan Klezma band The Turbans, who will be playing at the event alongside other musical guests.  The Turbans loyally return each year despite growing international renown that has seen them migrate from the fringe to main-stage spots at major summer festivals.

Food and drink
And of course it wouldn't be a Winter Market without spiced hot drinks and minced pies. Climpson will serve its world famous coffee, beans roasted around the corner in nearby Broadway Market. Turning Earth's neighbours at East London's Pavilion Cafe will be offering their delectable take on Sri Lankan street food while donating the proceeds to charity.

Made with care
Pavilion will be joined in its fundraising efforts by the many Turning Earth makers who donate special pieces and seconds at each event to raise money for organisations that reflect Turning Earth's vision of building a community with open arms - this year proceeds go to Help Refugees and the Hackney Migrant Centre.

All electricity used to fire the kilns at Turning Earth now comes from renewable sources. The studios will encourage shoppers to play their part by asking people to bring in their old bubble wrap to be reused as packaging.  


Ceramics Fair at Barbican OpenFest

On Sunday 18th March, 60 contemporary artists from Turning Earth will gather to sell their work in the unique setting of the Barbican's Conservatory Terrace and Garden Room.

Beautifully crafted tableware and one-off sculptural and conceptual pieces will be available to buy directly from their makers.

Throughout the day, artists will demonstrate their techniques in various locations along the Conservatory trail. There will also be opportunities for visitors to have a try at working with clay themselves.

Turning Earth Winter Market 2/3 December
12- 6 pm - Argall Ave, E10

It's going to be the biggest Turning Earth studio sale ever...

120 makers from both studios, and the businesses who form our accelerator, In Production will be gathering together to sell their work.

The other making businesses in the Mentmore studios building (of which Turning Earth E10 is part), will be opening their doors to the public as well - including Wilder Creative, ThinkFound, Uncommon Projects and Pavilion Bakery.

The winner of The Great Pottery Throwdown, our maker Ryan Barrett, will be demonstrating 3D printing in ceramics using a machine he made in his shed!

Browse and buy new work, listen to live music from members of Turning Earth's favourite band, The Turbans, and have a craft beer with the makers. There'll be Breton crepes and galettes on sale, and a full lunch menu at Lighthaus, the cafe downstairs.

As usual, we'll be selling specially donated works and seconds from studio members to raise money for the Hackney Migrant Centre, which helps immigrants and asylum seekers living in our community.

Turning Earth Autumn Market 7/8 October 12- 6 pm

After a break while the studio expanded (during which one of our makers won The BBC's Great Pottery Throwdown and several others found fame on Instagram), the popular destination for stylists, foodies and lovers of all things handcrafted throws opens its doors to the public again.

60 up-and-coming makers from the studio will be selling their work and demonstrating making techniques in our beautiful arches in Hoxton.

Browse and buy new work, listen to live music and have a craft beer with the makers. Hanoi Ca Phe will be providing Vietnamese street food. All this to a soundtrack of live music from the folks behind the popular East London music night, Woodburner. You never know, maybe you will pick up a piece from one of the ceramics stars of tomorrow.

As usual, we'll be selling specially donated works and seconds from studio members to raise money for the Hackney Migrant Centre, which helps immigrants and asylum seekers living in our community.
