Dear friends and followers of MAKERS, ever wondered why we don't inundate you with mailouts? Well, its the simple fact that as makers ourselves, we are so busy MAKING, that we rarely make time!
But here's our BIG NEWS we simply have to break off and tell you about!

THIS WEEK LIGHTS UP!
This week we have a Christmassy treat for you at MAKERS (and indeed the whole of the Christmas Steps Arts Quarter area).
Friday 25th November at 5.30pm it's the BIG Christmas Steps Lights Up! which is a charming event taking place initially at the top of the Christmas Steps.
Then you can wander from independent shop to independent shop where there is live music, special offers, poetry and winter warmth in all the shops (& hairdressers too!)
At MAKERS we have festive nibbles, 10% off all evening AND live music from Red Deer Sleeping and Guy Malkerson (From Yikes!) at 6.15pm.
Whats not to like? It is a good old fashioned 'little shop' evening with all the passion, originality and creativity that the big shops just don't do!
Thank youThank you all so much for supporting MAKERS in 2016. The artists, designers, printers, ceramicists, textile designers and stained glass artists, to name but a very few of the makers - toil away in their studios all year, drawing creative inspiration down and pouring it into the contemporary work that graces your homes. They are a wellspring of inspiration from our very own community and as makers ourselves, we appreciate the pleasure they give at MAKERS shop & gallery.

Hope to see you this friday! ( and if not, we are open late on Thursday evenings in December and also on sundays 12-4pm, in addition to Monday-Saturday.)
Workshops & Vouchers
P.S Don't forget if you want to make some space to make something for yourself, we run lampshade, linocut and letterpress workshops up on the mezzanine above makers. We also sell MAKERS vouchers in the shop!
Best festive wishes,
Sally, Sarah & Jo
