About events

Craft fairs, handmade fairs, exhibitions, creative workshops and classes are all hosted at Craft Central in east London throughout the year. Whatever your creative passion, you’ll find something of interest taking place. Our triple-height gallery within The Forge is quite a venue. Adorned with historic, industrial features including old gantries, ironwork and two original cranes, the Grade II listed building on the Isle of Dogs makes for the perfect day out.

You’ll find The Forge on Westferry Road, just five stops from Canary Wharf and seven minutes’ walk from Island Gardens DLR station (or hop on the D7 bus to the Harbinger stop). ...

Craft Central offers a community for artists, designer-makers, craftspeople and creative enterprises. Housing a collection of rental studios, in addition to co-working spaces and meeting rooms, it’s the ideal venue to showcase creative talent in London. What better location to host inspirational events such as craft fairs, handmade fairs and exhibitions?
