SAMPLE Christmas, a fair and market with over 100 designers, makers and traders from across London for a truly unique Christmas event.

On December 7 and 8, SAMPLE Christmas brought together over 100 designers, makers and traders from across London for a truly unique Christmas event. Along with the opportunity to buy independent fashion, delicious food and unique gifts, Yodomo facilitated several workshops that allowed visitors to try their hands at new crafts whilst taking home a new skill and handmade item. 

From bookbinding, wreath making, papercraft, willow star making, decoration and christmas card making, sewing and copper work, our expert makers led workshops that set the scene for holiday festivities. Read on for highlights from this event that supports sustainability, small-scale enterprises and local talent, as curated by Hemingway Design.
