As part of our on-going commitment to our community, we will be sharing the latest news, events and interesting stories coming from the local people, businesses and places within Walthamstow, Wanstead, and surrounding areas.
Create have worked with the Stow Brothers over the last two years to deliver the creative programme ‘Useful and Beautiful’ at the brilliant Walthamstow Garden Party, where over 35,000 people attend each year. Presented both inside the William Morris Gallery and outside on the lawns, children and adults were invited to take part in activities exploring the legacy of the revolutionary Victorian craftsman, designer and artist William Morris, trying their hand at ceramics, embroidery, wallpaper design, woodwork, printmaking and more. In total, there have been over 30 different workshops, delivered by local arts and crafts experts including wonderful bird and bee houses designed and delivered by the brothers themselves.
We’re especially excited to be working with them again this summer on an even more ambitious programme for the festival called Be Magnificent drawing together 60 years of exceptional arts and crafts in the local area. The relationship with the Stow Brothers is important to us, and working with a local independent company fits perfectly with the ambition of the whole festival and with our mission as a charity.

"I found Stow Brothers very helpful and professional throughout our sale. I never felt they were pushy and I felt they managed our expectations very well. Kim, who looked after us, was very approachable and professional and kept us up to date throughout the sale. I would have no hesitation in recommending their services. Thank-you. "
