The Paxton centre based in Crystal Palace is a community hub, gallery and shop that supports local artists, designers and makers.
The centre is run by Beth who is very friendly and welcoming. I came across a post on the Facebook page that was asking for volunteers to help in the afternoons and I thought it would be a great opportunity to see what is happening in the art world and network with other creative types.
Each month there is new artists showing their work which means there are new pieces to see and purchase. As you can see from above February is very busy with workshops, jazz performances and a fun quiz night.
These are just a few of the items on sale so if you are on the lookout for a quirky gift or want to brighten up a dull area then you can definitely find something suitable, or you can always make your own at one of the workshops on offer!
Pop in for a coffee or something to eat (they now have a café menu that features lunch meals, salads and cakes) and if you come in this Monday you get the added bonus of seeing me!
Do you have an interesting creative space near you?
