Papercrafts at Renegade London

I did make it to Renegade Craft Fair London (although I am still a little damp). There's one more day left - tomorrow, 8 Nov 11-6 at the Old Truman Brewery, entrance on Brick Lane - you have to ascend a flight of stairs decorated with papercut paper bag lanterns illuminated with LEDs.

Pic above shows a sampling of the papercrafts on offer. Clockwise from top left: children's 3-D papercraft kits from pappet.com (info@pappet.com/bernadettepejes.blogspot.com/www.pappet.com); pleated paper ornaments from Sarah Louise Matthews (www.sarahlouisemattehws.com/hello@sarahlouisematthews.com/@_sarah_matthews); and Froebel stars available as solo ornaments or buntings from Deborah Ballinger (hello@deborahballinger.co.uk/www.deborahballingder.co.uk).

Apart from the 3-D papercrafts above, there was plenty of letterpress,
some laser-cut pop-up cards, and some foiled pics. Themes of the merch: woodland animals still around, but cactii and terrariums in many shapes and forms win the popularity contest.

So, a worthwhile expedition - and I managed to top up my chocolate supply at Montezuma Spitalfields.:)
