Your search for interesting, unique Christmas gifts for the interesting, unique people in your life will be considerably easier if you concentrate your efforts on Bust magazine’s Craftacular in Bethnal Green on Sunday 28 November, sponsored by Etsy.

Expect myriad handmade delights – screenprints, knits, crafty delights, handmade cards, homeware, food goodies, jewellery – by  independent designer/makers from the UK, France and America, as well as lovely bits and bobs from household names such as Tatty Devine.

You can also get down to some crafting yourself. The Make Lounge will be hosting Christmas bauble painting workshops, Bethnal Green knitting shop Prick Your Finger will teach a Crochet Your Own Moustache class, craft writer Perri Lewis will be making all things pompom, while pattern makers DIY Couture will be demonstrating seamstress skills.

Shopping done, you can relax with afternoon tea with Time For Tease and Buttercupcakes and listen to tunes from extra-special DJs – like last year, with The Broken Hearts (below).
