The first National Festival of Making will take place in Blackburn, Lancashire on Saturday 6 and Sunday 7 May 2017. A key event within the Festival of Making is a weekend Makers Market situated in Blackburn’s King George’s Hall. The Makers Market is a collaboration between Festival producers, Deco Publique and Hopeful & Glorious as guest curators.
We’re delighted to be working with Deco Publique and our role as guest curators will be to bring together an incredible showcase of over 30 artists, makers and designers who have been selected for the quality and originality of their work. The Makers Market will be managed and produced by Deco Publique, transforming King Georges Hall into a vibrant and engaging weekend celebration of brilliant art, craft and design.
For the first National Festival of Making, Deco Publique, working with a range of partners, will bring together a multi-faceted programme of making and creativity with residencies, workshops, exhibitions and business development sessions.
