Handcrafted Fabric Christmas Tree at Old Spitalfields Market

Yes, Christmas is imminent and to celebrate the release of the PlayStation game LittleBigPlanet 3, Shipshape Arts were commissioned to build a giant fabric Christmas tree in Old Spitalfields Market in Shoreditch, London.




There were lots of celebrities milling around. We managed to get this shot of one of our favourites, Charlie Brooker!


Originally intended to only be up for one weekend as part of the promotion, Spitalfields loved it so much that they have decided to keep it there for the entire festive season! So, it will be up for all of December and if your Christmas shopping takes you in that direction, make sure you take a peek!


A special thanks goes out to Pirate Piers' mum, Ann, who hand knitted us a bespoke Sackboy to sit on top of our fabric Christmas tree. What a clever lady!

UPDATE: There has been lots of press around the tree, so just put those keywords into google like "playstation christmas tree spitalfields" and all the articles come up about it, including a bit from the Daily Mail.
