The Story of
Makers Market Midlands was created by CraftyBun Studio (Holly) & Willis Designs (Rick) in 2018. We have both done many markets over the years and had a common love for the potential of building a community of talented makers/artists. We've also had the unfortunate experience of attending markets that aren't quality controlled and sell items that aren't 100% handmade.
Makers Market Midlands is all about celebrating the skills and talents of local, independent makers from in the Midlands, UK.
At the beginning of Lockdown Arts Council England gave us some funding to get this website set up.
Our website and social media are done voluntarily by Holly & Rick. This website is to help promote all the talent we have here in the Midlands and where customers can come to buy something really special.
Our Makers directory of Midland-based Makers is ever-developing and we now have 90+ creatives listed!
