Graham Stone’s paintings will be on display

The Dalston Arts Fair is back later this month for the third year running.

Thirty local artists and makers will exhibit and sell their work over the weekend of 30 November and 1 December.

The Fair takes place at Grade II-listed St Mark’s Church Hall on Colvestone Crescent, opening 11am until 7pm on the Saturday and 10am until 5pm on the Sunday.

The free-to-enter exhibition offers visitors a chance to meet local artists and purchase their work directly.

Diane Ambida is one of six ceramic artists from Dalston’s famous Glebe Road studios who will be at the Fair

On display this year are paintings, drawings, photographs, collages and ceramics – including work by six artists from Dalston’s iconic Glebe Road studios.

There will also be jewellery, embroidery, accessories and homeware on show and up for sale.

Homemade lunches, tea, cake and muled wine will be available throughout the weekend at affordable prices.

Dalston Arts Fair takes place from 30 November to 1 December at St Mark’s Church Hall, Colvestone Crescent, E8 1LJ.

Support us

The coronavirus outbreak meant that the Hackney Citizen was unable to print a monthly newspaper for three months.

We're grateful that we have since been able to resume printing. This would not have been possible without the generosity of our readers, whose donations kept the paper from disappearing completely at a distressing time for residents.

A huge thank you to everyone who gave their time and money to support us through the lockdown, and to those who continue to do so as we slowly recover from the dramatic fall in advertising revenues, on top of the existing challenges threatening the future of local journalism.

A one-off donation or a regular contribution from anyone who can afford it will help our small team keep the newspaper in print and the website running in the coming months and years.

Thank you for your support, and stay safe.
