Five things to see in March
BRICK LANE throbs at weekends with locals, visitors, vibrant markets, new restaurants, street food and buskers. An added draw is this quarterly market, with 50 carefully chosen designers selling their best stuff in the atmospheric brick caverns of The Old Truman Brewery.
New graduate Nia Rist will bring her handprinted textiles and lamp shades from South Wales, including Bow cushion, £30, and Dotty lampshade, £50, left. Matt Gilbert precisionengineers ingenious concertina-like “fold-flat” lamps in an east London studio. Fine art graduate Lilly Mandarano launched her Super Sparrow brand a year ago, handbuilding and glazing clay into striking minimalist shapes for tableware and kitchenware. Live music is by folkfusion band Lost Travellers.
