House of Illustration Winter FairFrom illustrated calendars to clothing, stationery to ceramics, greetings cards to glassware, the House of Illustration Winter Fair invites over 150 independent stallholders to set up shop for one day. At this special December market, you'll be buying handmade, one-of-a-kind pieces direct from the makers themselves. Whether you're interested in illustrated children's books inspired by nature or dark and surreal posters, you can expect environmentally friendly, plastic free artworks. Housed indoors, at The Crossing by Central Saint Martins, you won't freeze while you browse and there are plenty of places to shop and refuel in nearby Granary Square and Coal Drops Yard.

 

About House of Illustration

House of Illustration, the first permanent home of the charity of the same name, opened in Granary Square, King's Cross, in summer 2014 with an inaugural exhibition of works by much loved illustrator Quentin Blake. The gallery and education space is the place to see, learn about, and enjoy illustration in all its forms, from adverts to animation, picture books to political cartoons and scientific drawings to fashion design.
