Today we hand over to Anne-Marie Shepherd to give her insider's guide to MADE Brighton - The Desgin and Craft Fair...
The resurgence of craft shows no sign of abating, Every village, town and city seems to be brimming with homemade ware; fairs, fetes, pop up shops, specialist shows, beautiful high end galleries - it seems we can’t get enough of it.
MADE BRIGHTON – The Design and Craft Fair is the city’s annual contemporary craft and design show taking place at The Dome Corn Exchange from 21 – 23 November. The fair, sponsored by COAST Magazine themselves true craft advocates, offers the public the opportunity to buy original and exceptional pieces of craft and design direct from designer / makers. Now in its 9th year, MADE BRIGHTON has become firmly established as a friendly, accessible and top quality event. The show welcomes over 5500 visitors; collectors, galleries, curators and of course Christmas shoppers, many of whom return year on year knowing that the work is well worth viewing.
We are delighted that local basket maker and willow artist, Annemarie O'Sullivan, will be showing and demonstrating her stunning work in the foyer at MADE BRIGHTON. Annemarie makes baskets and loves to transfer the traditional skills of basket making into larger woven forms. We can’t wait to see what she brings!
A café provides a place for visitors to relax and take refreshment.
