Makers of Lovely Things

Makers Of Lovely Things is an annual event that brings together local artisans and makers to sell their handmade products.

We have a selection criterea that prioritises inclusion from makers that make in Britain and are handmade where possible- although this year we will include a percentage of stall holders who manufacture ethically outside of the UK.

We aim to showcase very talented makers and take time to select a good balance of stallholders.

Applications are open. Like us on facebook for a reminder of when applications open.
