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.
