The Designer-Makers Showcase takes place in two of the main Festival venues (the Town Hall and the Memorial Hall), reserved for selected practitioners who both design and make their own objects. Designer-makers exhibiting at the Festival are selected from both regional and national makers working in a variety of media including, but not limited to, ceramics, glass, wood, metal, textiles and jewellery, that both reflect the signature of the individual maker and exhibit a high degree of technical skill.

Take a look at previous designer-makers that have exhibited. Watch this space from June onwards for those taking part in 2019.
