This Christmas if you’re bored of giving your granny a set of hankies or your dad another road atlas and you need a bit of retail inspiration then the RCA is the perfect place to shop as it opens its first Christmas Fête to the public from 6th to 9th December.

RCA students and graduates will be selling a range of affordable, beautiful and unique art and design pieces that are sure to make your friends and family smile. Items start from as little as £2 and range from a tongue-in-cheek nativity set; kitsch chimpanzee pin cushions; a flat-pack wooden birdhouse; a folding cardboard desk light and tea-cup jewellery. This is a fantastic opportunity to pick up original Christmas gifts as well as helping to support up and coming creative student talent. Japanese student Tomomi Sayuda is also selling accessories in collaboration with craftsmakers in northern Japan affected by the 2011 tsunami. The items include iPhone cases and business card holders made from traditional kimono fabric from the Aizu region of the country.

The Fête will be located in a marquee on Jay Mews in Kensington and will also feature a pop up café serving festive sweet treats courtesy of Kath’s Cakes, hot chocolate and mulled soft drinks. The Fête has been organised by the RCA Students’ Union to help promote the work of students to a wider audience.
Visitors to the Christmas Fête will also be able to view the College’s 175th anniversary exhibition, The Perfect Place to Grow, located in the Kensington galleries. With free late night entry on Friday 7 December until 8pm, this will be a chance to visit both events on the same night.
