The Maker's Boutique started in November 2010 as a platform to showcase handmade Arts and Crafts by the talented Hannah Marshall and Katy Dormer. Their original concept was to provide a regular market in Brighton to sell handmade wares, and has since grown very quickly into a brand synonymous with original handmade Arts and Crafts.
This was our first experience of showing at a craft fair in Brighton and quite nerve wracking. However Hannah, Katy and all the other artists were so friendly and helpful it was good fun! The only problem was trying not to spend all our money buying the lovely crafts from the other artists - too tempting!
We are showing at the Maker's Boutique Christmas fair on the 23rd November at the Brighton Unitarian Church near the Dome 11- 5
Hannah and Katy embraced our idea to hold a raffle for the DogsTrust charity who rehome dogs and now all the stall holders are contributing to the raffle which is amazing - thank you so much everyone! We will be donating a made to measure dog collar.
