Bethnal Green Road East End Garlands

Thursday, 21st December 2017

This year we have had some lovely additions to the Bethnal Green Road shop front festive decorations. Ten of our businesses worked with designers make:good to create an East End Garland that is unique to them and celebrates the tools of their trade.

To explore what makes the businesses on Bethnal Green Road unique, make:good asked them ‘What are the tools of your trade?’ and ‘What can’t you do your work without?’. The responses were as diverse as the businesses they visited, and they photographed these collections of objects before creating drawings of them and transforming them into a set of unique festive decorations.

‘We loved getting to talk to the fantastic entrepreneurs running businesses and find out what tools, objects, products they need to be able to make their shops stand out. The diversity of all the objects was fantastic to see and it was a delight to turn these into decorations that are especially for them.’
