Some of you will remember the TV show from when we were growing up – that's not the Renegade that I'm talking about! I'm talking about The Renegade Craft Fair – a curated indie-craft marketplace showcasing the brightest talents in contemporary craft and design.

Renegade returns to London,  Saturday 22 + Sunday 23, November, from 11am – 6pm, at the Old Truman Brewery, located at 91 Brick Lane, E1 6QL, London, UK
