Not Busted the band, it's BUST Christmas maker designer fair
On Sunday 14th December from 12pm London's cool crafters will be gathering around a handmade felt christmas tree* (complete with pom-poms) chatting all things BUST-y.

Bust Craft Fair
Craft fun: I Am Acrylic workshop

Why? This is because New York based women's pop-culture magazine BUST will be in full craft-fair throw at The Islington Metal Works (just behind Angel Tube) with over 70 stalls full of handmade treasures and workshops for you to join.

The talented designer-makers that will be at the party include household names such as "Pugs not drugs" illustrator Gemma Correll and other indy sparkly-sellers.

More craft fun: Gemma Correll's out-next-year book (Andrews McMeel Publishing)

With a mix of vendors selling everything from perspex jewellery and screen-printed cushions to taxidermy and terrariums, the BUST Craftacular is a one-stop destination for unique Christmas gifts.

The word on the craft street, is that the King of Paper-Cut himself, artist Rob Ryan will be selling exclusive screen-printed wrapping paper.
