The Creative Edit: Walking Tours

By charlenelam- 20th September - 22nd September 2018

From studios to shops to showrooms, Shoreditch is an ecosystem of creative enterprise and activity. Join The Creative Edit for guided tours of tucked away creative spaces and an inside view of East London design highlights.

Tours will be led by curator and creative business mentor Charlene C Lam, who will share her insights into London’s evolving creative landscape.

A New Yorker who lived in East London for 8+ years working with independent designers and makers, Charlene will guide you to some of her favourite spots, from makers’ studios to hidden gems. Charlene curates pop-up shops and writes about design under the names The Creative Edit and Creative Clerkenwell.

Tours include candid conversation about making a creative living in London and beyond — ideal if you’re an aspiring or emerging designer!
