My studio space used to be just a 5 minute bicycle ride frrom Golborne Rd Market, so I would go there pretty much every Friday morning on my bicycle ride to work. That’s where I got palettes for my workshops (beautiful plates instead of plastic), all the teacups, cutlery and more for the studio and had many many coffees with fellow artists and friends.
My favourite bit is the Golborne Rd Market where on Friday morning there are boxes of someones old things which become someone else’s treasure. On my last trip I bought some plates for home and found some colour inspiration for my August Newsletter.
I would recommend getting off at Notting Hill Station and walk all the way to the top of Portobello Rd (with optional detours to see cute houses and Mews) and then stroll down Goldborne Rd and pick up some goods and have some Pastel de Nata from a local Portugese cafe).
Get a coffee ☕️ at Pedlars, sit outside and watch the locals go by their daily business. Good for leisurely strolls and doodle sessions, also excellent for dog spotting.
