Kent artists, makers and designers are invited to submit their work for the Designers and Makers Market held at Turner Contemporary in Margate on Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd December 2023.
Our goal is to showcase the work of Kent based designers and makers whilst creating an opportunity to sell directly to existing and new customers, in one of the main cultural venue in the county.
The event – in its 6th edition – allows exhibitors to promote what they do and also to meet customers and other creatives.
What last year exhibitors liked best:
To be a part of a group of people with good quality products. A fabulous selection.
Meeting other makers, feeling part of a community. High standard of products, professional presentation in a cultural venue which attracts the right type of customer.
The location is perfect and highlights the work. Clientele were super enthusiastic. Instructions were clear and made it extremely stress free.
A steady flow of people and a good crowd.
The group of makers and the relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Great venue and very well organised. Great mix of visitors.
Everyone very friendly and supportive.
