Mare Street Maker Mile

The Maker Mile is a creative cluster of fabricators, studios and workshops in east London. The area is one mile in radius and centres on the point where Mare Street crosses the old industrial transport hub of the Regent’s Canal. The area has a mix of old and new making; from printmakers to Fab Labs, metal work to new media.
