South East Makers Club was established in 2016 with the dual aims of spotlighting the creativity in this corner of London and putting the South East firmly on the design map during the London Design Festival.

We have a strong community of designers and makers based here spanning all disciplines. This is due to the universities in this part of town, the architecture — huge warehouse buildings and railway arches that lend themselves to studio spaces — plus it’s not quite so expensive to live in South East London! This has enabled many designer-makers to establish homes, careers and small-businesses here.

The South East Makers Club is organised by a voluntary group of design enthusiasts, not-for-profit, simply for the love of design. There are many people who have given their time but the core team huddled around the kitchen table are Helen Osgerby, Amy Bicknell, Benji Roebuck and Georgia Bosson with Lucy James (invaluably) supporting them remotely.
