Designer Makers Show and Sale 2021

Our next event coming August 2021 is the Designer Maker's Show and Sale!

This show features our current crop of artist/makers with the addition of ceramicist James Pettinger who will be showing beautiful contemporary table ware and decorative vases.

in addition to this we have the incredible textiles of Simon Henry,  prints and exclusive tree ornaments from artist Keith Newlove,  fabulous steel sculpture by Trudie Wilson, incredible and whimsical figurative ceramic sculpture of Abbie Sunter,  the stunning images of photographer Ray Gumbley and the exquisite glass artistry of Stevie Davies.

This show has been conceived as an exclusive shopping experience with an emphasis on gift items.  Due to the Covid 19 pandemic,  a lot of our artists have struggled due to exhibiting restrictions and this is our way of providing a much needed financial boost for them.

We look forward to welcoming you to the show where you will be able to purchase unique and inspiring gift items from some of the best creatives Derbyshire has to offer!

NB:  To keep you, us and our artists safe we respectfully request that you wear a suitable face covering and make use of the provided hand sanitiser.

Much love as always,

Keith & Simon

What our clients have to say:

"Just wanted to share with you how wonderful your exhibition was.

I must say initially I had some reservations about attending with the current situation, but I can clearly say no one, including myself would have needed to have any worries whatsoever. We were not allowed to enter until temperatures had been taken, sanitizers was used, and the path ( 1 way in, 1 way out ) was clear. I was very impressed with the way in was all so perfectly organised.

Now to the wonderful exhibition. I was very impressed with all the exhibits, but especially yours Keith, as always it was perfection, the talent you have is unbelievable, you certainly are a very gifted man. The structure you created for displaying your beautiful birds was magnificent and well thought about to create the very best.

I often think about you, as I look at my 2 beautiful meaningful pictures you sketched, please keep up the good work, and well all look forward to seeing your next creation. "


“We enjoyed the Salon Contemporary Arts Exhibition, which was very COVID safe and secure.  It was delightful to see the enthusiasm of the artists whilst discussing their work. The originality, varied range of materials used and high quality of the exhibitors in the excellent Salon surroundings, with the stunning centrepiece of flying crows, made this a must-see exhibition.
