Hidden Art of Hackney today & tomorrow

Various venues

This weekend represents your last chance to sample the creative delights of the east, as Hackney's brightest designers and artists congregate around the borough. Shoreditch Town Hall, Pennybank Chambers and Cornwell House in Clerkenwell, and Broadway Market near London Fields are the focal points this weekend, while individual studios are also receiving visitors. Free walking tours of the area take in sights and premises, and shuttle buses are available for the less mobile. Nathan Abbey's wonderful glass and metal tables, Samson Soboye's sumptuously plump cushions (both Shoreditch), Helena Ivin's cool prints of urban London (Broadway Market) and Mark Nuell's precious-metal jewellery (Clerkenwell) are among the highlights.
