The Paxton Centre evolved from a Crystal Palace Transiton Town project called Handmade Palace which provided an opportunity for local artists and craftspeople to sell their work within the community. It ran every Saturday at The Crystal Palace Food Market before a venue was found to give it a permanent home. Here we can support makers and groups offering exhibitions, workshops, meetups and events. Handmade Palace still remains providing seasonal Art and Craft Markets at various local venues. Crystal Palace Transition Town work closely with The Paxton Centre to provide a space for local people to socialise, collaborate and get involved with various projects and community led groups.
