This Saturday, the newest designer to join Columbia Road’s selection of independent retailers will open its doors for a Christmas treat! To celebrate the new opening, Jimbob Art will be brewing up some hot spicy cider on the stove all day as well as giving the first 10 people through the door a limited edition print and the first 20 purchases an additional free print!
Jimbob Art, created by James Ward, brings the world of animals onto plates and mugs. His hand- drawn ceramics range has a woodland setting while the creatures have urban sensibilities and a love for cakes, biscuits, and cheese. From the Sandwich Defender to the Ghetto Badger, each animal has a personal quirk guaranteed to make any mealtime even more enjoyable.
Inspired by illustrators from John Tenniel and Alan Lee to Street Artists like Blu, James Ward graduated from Westminster University with a degree in Illustration. James always has had a passion drawing animals, but was inspired after a trip to Stockholm, Sweden to put his creations on ceramic plates and mugs.
We are excited for James and his grand opening! Come down to Columbia Road Saturday 1 December to enjoy a delectable minced pie while perusing and purchasing Christmas gifts this holiday season. With your support, you will be helping the talented local designers of Columbia Road. If this Saturday does not fit into your bustling and busy Christmas schedule, both shops will be open for Christmas Wednesdays and the Flower Market each Sunday on Columbia Road.We will be opening our doors at 2pm to show some of our new Christmas gifts this season!
Doors open at Jimbob Art at 146A Columbia Road from 12:00pm until 8:00pm.
