Makers House returns for its third outing this September, as part of the South East Makers Club for the London Design Festival.
Makers House was founded in 2017 as a roving, design-led and highly curated gallery and shop. The aim; to bring together a group of designers and makers seeking an alternative to traditional exhibiting methods.
The Makers House designers wanted to show their work in a space that would educate people about the journey a product takes from conception to completion; to connect their audience with their process.
This year, the art of collaboration is at the heart of the exhibit, Create & Collaborate will showcase partnerships from some of South London’s most exciting up-and-coming makers. Some of these collaborations are the result of exhibiting together at previous Makers House shows, others from long-standing artistic alliances and the exploration of these varied creative relationships will be central to this years exhibition.
Storytelling is an essential part of Makers House, showcasing the entire making process from initial sketches via months of experimentation to a finished product. This is an increasingly prominent and important story for consumers in a progressively more conscious marketplace. Makers House breaks down the barriers of traditional design showcases, enabling new conversations and ideas to evolve between makers and visitors.

Cecily attended St Edward’s School, Oxford. In 2017 the school celebrates its 20th anniversary of becoming fully co-educational. This exhibition marks the occasion by bringing together six former pupils who are now forging careers as professional artists and artisans. These women all studied art during their time at the school, and it is a wonderful opportunity to see how their work has progressed and their practice has developed in the intervening years.
The exhibition encompasses a broad range of styles, media and techniques: from Rose Barry’s egg-shell ceramics and Lâle Guralp’s highly detailed, intricate illustrations; to Rebecca Wilkes’ bold, statement floral jewellery, there’s a wealth of talent on display. Many of the artists draw inspiration from their surroundings: Miranda Stewart paints semi-abstract expressionistic landscapes and Harriet Blomefield’s drawings are inspired by urban architecture.
Cecily will be exhibiting some original drawings of her favourite locations in Oxford and she has also created a limited edition screen print of the view of the St Edward’s School Quad/Chapel and Cloisters for the exhibition.
First up is an exhibition at Festa Sul Prato in Deptford, London. There will be an opening evening on the 12th January at which there will be a dinner at 7pm to book a table please see the flyer.
The exhibition will run until the 29th January.
