From Our Editors

This independent shop is also a studio and gallery and specialises in contemporary textile design with a keen interest in eco design and upcycling. This organisation was founded in the year 2000 in a refurbished building in Hackney, London. Started by Barley Masses, Fabrications has been host to many exhibitions over the last few years and sold work by hundreds of artists and designers from the local area. By 2001 Barley was making household rugs from bicycle inner tubes and by 2006, Fabrications had turned into a small department store. By 2012, the Imaginerium had opened and was nominated for various awards including the Hackney's Design Award. The shop on Broadway Market is open every day of the week and visitors can purchase anything from books to knitting kits as well as gift cards and hand crafted household items. The ethos of this organisation circulates strongly around the environment and recycling items that would usually be thrown away, into something more useful than landfill matter. Community and education are also two principles at the heart of Barley's ethics, she is always striving to find new ways of bringing people together, as well as forging friendships and relationships, business and personal. She has been a professional upcycler for the past 15 years and has strong business relationships with recycling companies based in Caning Town such as LMB, a family run firm. Fabrications have been the subject of various articles within the press and stories have been published in broadsheets such as the Guardian and the Observer. Fabrications are open for business throughout the year.

This was the best 3 hours crafting I have had for a long time. Although I am able to sew I am not very good at design or co-ordinating colour. Barley gave me the confidence to construct a crazy patch cushion which I have already put to good use. A really lovely evening.

Cut the group size by one or two just to allow for more space when working.
