Before and After!

We spent about a month repainting and wallpapering so that the shop looks lovely and bright (we're thinking St. Ives!). The little photos show how it looked prior to our seaside-inspired transformation..

And here are a few close-up tasters of our creativity, and there is more coming in all the time..

A delightful hedgehog plate by JoannaRose

Stained glass sample (price per square foot) by Dora McCormack

'Hand' wrapping paper by Sarah Salaman (and it's hand screenprinted!)

Screenprinted cufflinks by Sallydove

We run the shop & gallery together so do pop in and you may catch us in the process of making some work in there (meet the makers!). Commissions always welcome, and admiring browsers too..
Monday to saturday 10-5.30pm

MAKERS opening was a smasher!

Thank you SO much to everyone who came and supported us on friday night..the shop has truly had an energetic launch. Fruit punch and wine flowed, peppered by fantastic fairy cakes (thanks Jo and Chez) and a stream of enthusiastic folk through our doors..

We had wonderful helpers giving out MAKERS flyers to willing passers by & offering delicious cakes round. Our very first live band played sizzlingly on the mezzanine; Snails! This is hopefully just a hint of more local musician action to come..

It was a bit cramped up there but the music was brilliant! We particularly loved the opening 'shop' song written by Dan especially for us, thanks Dan, Mog and Jo for all your hard work and sweet sounds.

Watch this MAKER space for photos and details of new locally made work as it comes in from our lovely makers..
