Clerkenwell Design Week 2016

by: Mandana Oskoui


Clerkenwell Design Week (CDW) is the UK's leading independent design festival. The Goldsmiths' Centre was proud to be the 'live events hub' of this year's events and was a real hive of activity with over 3000 visitors. With so much going on, we thought we would let the pictures do the talking! A big thanks to all involved in making it so successful and enjoyable.
