‘Home Is In The North’ – A brand new interiors event coming to Manchester

I’m exhibiting at the first ever Home is In The North event on April 26th! The event is taking place at Halle St Peters in the Ancoats area of the city and it promises to be an interior event like no other. Not only are there 30 fabulous independent designer-makers selling their wares, but there will also be a number of interactive workshops going on throughout the day and some yummy food stalls too!

Home is Flyer There’s already plenty of buzz around the event. This heightened recently thanks to a pop-up photoshoot around the city, where many of the exhibitors (myself included) created homely settings with their products in various locations in Manchester. The professional photographs are now being used to promote the event, but I’m pleased to show you some of the behind the scenes shots I captured myself, to give you a flavour of what to expect!

For more information and to purchase your advance tickets please visit Home Is In The North. Hope to see you there!

The Independent Interiors Show

On Saturday I exhibited at the first ever Independent Interiors Show, which took place at the quirky 2022 venue in Manchester’s Northern Quarter. It was a pleasure to be involved with the show, which featured some of the best independent designer-makers from the north. Being fairly new to the scene it was great to meet so many local creatives and interior enthusiasts! To top the day off a number of fab up-cycling and ceramic workshops took place and sent ripples of applause around the venue throughout the day!

The folks at Tim Simpson Photography were on hand to record the day’s events and here are some terrific shots of my stand courtesy of them!

The event was a huge success and so it’s no surprise to hear that organisers Rachael and Victoria are already planning the next one!
