Notice anything new?!!! Oh yes we have a new logo and also a new time for you all to visit.
This year 9th and 10th December sees us opening our doors for the first time in the winter there are some great makers that are inviting you in to “come see what we do”. Here we look at 5 makers that will opening up.
As well as setting up their regular workshops The Dual Works have been really busy this year working on collabs across the city but they have still somehow found the time to launch a brand new light range incorporating formica and ply. The lights are named after streets right here in the Jewellery Quarter.
Another person whose feet very rarely seem to hit the ground is Alyn Waterman, last week he ran a live make-up workshop with none other than Joan Collins herself. This time Alyn will be introducing his new “shop” space as well as advising us all about our festive hair and make up.
Rhiannon Lewis has been experimenting with more precious stones this year, we have really enjoyed seeing stones set in yellow gold as well as silver. Form and line as always influence her designs which are becoming stronger all the time.
Downstairs from Rhiannon is Eleni Zolia of Zolia jewellery, the sculptural quality of her work blends between real and imagined worlds, semi precious stones nestle and float within the highly polished silver shapes.
Sarah Hazell is a knitwear designer and exhibits around the country but hails from right here in Birmingham. Her patterns and kits are extremely popular alongside her knitting accessories line. Sarah will be at Unti 7 Pitsford Street, where Tina Francis is again inviting makers from around Birmingham to show that Craft builds community.
So that’s the first five, we will be adding more real soon. Not enough images in this blog? Then just go to our Instagram and facebook sites for more images.
