MAKE 2018 runs: 17 November 2018 – 6 January 2019
MAKE is the Devon Guilld's annual Christmas selling exhibition celebrating the diversity of contemporary craft.
The exhibition focuses on selling handmade, high quality craftwork and connecting makers with our Christmas customers. By highlighting one-off, unique pieces alongside small scale batch production we aim to offer a range of mediums and prices to suit all.
The exhibition is open to any UK-based craftsperson or designer-maker whose work fits these criteria. We are particularly looking for makers who produce exciting and contemporary work.
The Christmas season is a key time for sales; during the run of MAKE 2017 over 16,000 people visited the exhibition, more than 14,000 visited online, and over £29,000 in sales were achieved.
