This Sunday, the BUST Christmas Craftacular returns to London! To celebrate, we’ve put together our own BUST Craftacular Christmas wishlist, full of beautiful things handmade by the designers and makers of Folksy who will be setting up their stalls on Sunday and showing you what they’re made of – and what they’ve been making with it. We’re also ridiculously excited about the jewellery-making workshops that our competition winners I Am Acrylic are running all day, where you can learn how to make an acrylic masterpiece without stepping near a laser-cutter. We almost literally cannot wait. But we know we must. Until then…
