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.

This year we are also popping up with a Makers Marketplace at Ormesby Hall on Saturday 9th July 10.30am - 4pm. FREE entry to the hall and grounds all day!

Of course the market will continue as part of the Make & Mend Festival day on Sunday 10th - a full weekend of handmade loveliness! Check out the makers joining us below!

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 everyone there!

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.
