2 December 2017, Selvedge Fair, London, UK
Mary Ward House, 5-7 Tavistock Place, Kings Cross, London WC1H 9SN
Saturday 2 December, 11am-5pm, entrance £5
The Selvedge team brings a curated collection of 40 merchants and makers to Bloomsbury. Our exhibitors sell a range of rare vintage fabrics, covetable haberdashery and skillfully handmade textile treasures. The fair offers the perfect opportunity to meet makers, catch up with old friends, and pick up that special something in preparation for the festive season.
A Grade I listed building, Mary Ward House is a result of Passmore Edwards’ 19th century philanthropy. Mary Ward inspired the ethos of training, care and entertainment that's behind this centre, which was designed for the less fortunate members of society. Each room has its own ambience, most notably The Dickens Library and the back staircase where Mary Ward House's original mission statement can be found.
MAKE A DAY OF IT
