MADE08 Launch

We managed to build and launch MADE08 without incident and we're relieved and pleased that the response from the public has been incredible. Buyers say that this show is the best they've seen in Brighton and gives top London shows a run for their money! They praised the quality and originality of the exhibitors and the range of work on show.

The show was opened by Clare Gogerty editor of Coast Magazine - she praised the quality of work at the show and stressed the importance of supporting craft and design by individuals buying work.

"Brighton and Hove Collects Award"
The Private View also saw the launch of a new award the "Brighton and Hove Collects Award" which is a partnership between Made and Brighton and Hove Museums to purchase pieces for the museums collections. Polly Harknett the Craft Curator at Hove Museum presented the award to Nick Barberton for a carved wooden platter and Ark Glass for their exuberant blown glass.

The show continues Saturday 10.00 - 6.00 and Sunday 10.00 - 5.00 we really hope you'll get there!
