London’s traditional Christmas-shopping hubs have some competition to contend with. In the heart of Thomas Heatherwick’s Coal Drops Yard in King’s Cross, Lower Stable Street’s design-led festive programme promises Londoners an imaginative and sustainable alternative to the likes of Carnaby Street and Oxford Street.

Run by artist, architect and designer collective STORE Projects, STORE STORE is a design store with an educational mission. Its After School Club was founded to help get young people from diverse backgrounds into the creative disciplines, giving local schoolchildren the chance to access new ideas, materials and processes – and take their designs to production.

On 6 December, STORE STORE will transform Lower Stable Street’s outdoor space into a celebration of sustainable design, with a curated collection of market stalls selling progressive and experimental products made by After School Club students and local designers and makers.

After School Club participants will be selling baubles made in workshops with Attua Aparicio, co-founder of Silo Studio (who will also be selling her own hand-made pendants); candles created with Wax Atelier (who will also be selling their own natural dyed waxed cloth, beeswax dipped candles and candlesticks); and soap and soap dishes made with Studio Furthermore. All proceeds from sales will go to a cause of the students’ choice.

Other stallholders include designer-maker Tessa Silva, interdisciplinary designer and ceramic artist Francesca Anfossi, ceramic designer-maker Sevak Zargarian, ceramics studio Frizbee Ceramics and science-inspired design brand Unit Lab.
