Turning Earth Makers' Market

at Barbican OpenFest

turning earth market

Explore the stalls and interactive demonstrations as well as meet the east London traders setting up shop among the vines in the Conservatory Terrace and Garden Room on Sunday of Barbican OpenFest

On Sunday 18 March, 60 ceramic artists will sell hand-crafted work made in the Turning Earth community studios in London's East End.

Alongside a wide variety of unique and beautiful handmade pots sold directly by the makers there will be interactive demonstrations to encourage visitors to have a go themselves. 

Turning Earth will be joined in the Conservatory by Wild Card Brewery, a Walthamstow based brewery and tap bar, founded on the back of a hobby that got way out of hand! Wild Card have achieved a reputation for no-nonsense, uncompromising beers which they’ll be serving from their keg bar in the Conservatory from 12 – 6pm. Come and enjoy a pint and have a chat with the Wild Card team.

Velopresso will also be serving fresh coffee from Walthamstow-based roasters Perky Blenders at their pedal-powered coffee trike in the Conservatory throughout the day.

RHS on Tour will be taking place on the Barbican Lakeside.
