Urban Makers was founded in Bow, by two designer friends Ilka Dickens and Julia Redgrove. Building on their personal experiences as artists, Ilka and Julia have built a vibrant creative network where designers can tap into the strength of community.
They are a regular presence at Old Spitalfields Market – hosting guest markets every Wednesday and the last weekend of the month – and they have appeared at events at Here East and Stylist Live, amongst others.
