Origin exhibition 2010

Yesterday was a  crazy day, I started early doors and headed over to Decorex (I will blog about my favourites later today) and then I headed all the way back to Spitalfields Market to Origin. This exhibition has always been a firm favorite as I LOVE looking at all of the designer makers work (it finishes today so hurry down if you want to take a look).  Run by The crafts Council, it’s their annual showcase of original contemporary craft.  I remember spending many a day at the Crafts council researching for my textile degree; I was always using their huge selection of books and information to research designers.  The event was extremely busy to say the least and so it was a little tricky to take any pics.  I have used the photos from the Origin website to list my favourites (below).
