About the Market

Designer Makers Market was established in 2013 by textile artist Kathryn Guy. Frustrated by a lack of good quality, genuinely handcrafted events in the North East she decided to organise some herself.

Participants are 'handpicked' and offer a good mix of mediums. The event always attracts customers who appreciate the uniqueness of the products and the time that has gone into making them.


Café: Serving breakfast 8am (9am Saturdays) until 11.30am. Lunch served 12noon-3.30pm. Drinks & cakes served all day until 5pm.

Bistro: Serving A La Carte lunches from 12noon-4pm.

Bookings strongly advised for both - book by calling 01969 621146.


Admission is free but a donation for Herriot Hospice Homecare would be gratefully received
