Fresh from their London Design Festival pop-up, Fetch & Follow will also be showcasing their Dog Art Postcard Wall at the market. Celebrating all things dogs and in association with contemporary dog-centric magazine Four & Sons, the wall exhibits the creative work of 50 different artists to help raise money and awareness for the WECare Sri Lanka charity that helps care for Sri Lankan street dogs.

A complete book of all postcards will be available to purchase with profits of each sale being donated to the charity. Visitors will also be encouraged to take postcards of their choice in exchange for a token donation.
