If you fancy trawling a great london market for vintage homeware and nicknacks then head to Bermondsey, London, on a Friday !

Bermondsey Square
London
SE1 3UN

6am til 2pm

Time Out says:

Held every Friday, this long-running south London market is heaven on earth for bargain-hunters.

Situated at the end of buzzy Bermondsey Street, this market is a south London institution. Every Friday, locals with magpie eyes flock here to trawl around 200 stalls for bargain china, silver, furniture, glassware and pottery. Not everything here would make it onto ‘Antique’s Roadshow’, but sifting the fab from the tat is part of the fun. In recent years, the market has expanded to include fashion, craft and food stalls, but antiques are still the focus. Just remember to arrive early: trading begins at 6am and most stall-holders will be packing up by lunchtime. When you’re done bargain-hunting, lively Bermondsey has loads of lunch options.

Founded by Ana Kerin, KANA LONDON is a clay workshop with a difference. Rather than using a traditional wheel to create the pieces, Ana’s workshops teach you how to hand build.

With an array of workshops to choose from a you can find one that suits you. From a tableware taster session to a three week course, or something in between.

My approach to work is experimental and playful, as I never follow a procedure, and invent new recipes daily. I work with a unique mixture of clays and mix my own glazes, often turning my back on traditional ceramic practice. Hand building, rather than turning on the wheel, further emphasizes the individuality of each piece.
