The Makers Marketplace will return for 2022 with a range of thoughtfully curated craft kits and handmade gifts for those looking for something unique. We are passionate about supporting independent businesses and the market will showcase a small selection of the brilliant makers in the North East.

Curated by Hello Hooray!

We are very excited to announce that Clare Albans will be curating the market this year!

Clare will be bringing her expert crafty experience to selecting the stallholders and we can't wait to see who will be joining us!

Clare started with a creative blog sharing her creative ideas and has gone on to develop her own unique brand of colourful embroidery designs with her first book published in 2020.


Hello! Hooray! now has its own retail and workshop studio up in Newcastle so we couldn’t think of anyone better to ask to help us create the marketplace this year!
