Crafty Fox Uncovered - Spring Markets 2015

We love finding new creative talent which puts a smile on your face.

The Crafty Fox Uncovered programme has been running for a little over a year. So far nearly 50 traders have taken part in the scheme which supports those who have been in business for less than 12 months. Successful applicants benefit from reduced price stalls and mentoring from within the Crafty Fox community.

This year we are celebrating the expansion of Crafty Fox Uncovered with it's launch at our second venue, The Bussey Building in Peckham. Uncovered has so far been hugely popular at our markets at the Dogstar in Brixton, and we have seen traders who have taken part in the scheme develop into established traders in the main market and even become mentors themselves. 

Current mentor Katie Wagstaff from Oh Squirrel tells us more:

"It feels really good to use some of the things I've learnt along the way to help other makers. Just little tips, like having products at different price points, and creative (and inexpensive) ways to create an effective display."

You can find this wealth of new talent on the top floors of both markets, at The Bussey Building in Peckham on 11 and 12 April (11am - 5pm), and at the Dogstar in Brixton on 25 & 26 April (11am - 5pm).
