TWIST & MAKE MARKET: Showcasing Contemporary Craft


Phoenix Brighton, home of Art Junky, will be showcasing some of our favourite makers in our upcoming craft event, Twist & Make. Twist & Make celebrates traditional and contemporary craft, bringing makers, techniques and art all together in a beautifully crafted way! With delightful tea and cakes, retro fruit cocktails and a quirky, eclectic soundtrack by our favourite DJ's, Twist & Make will have something for anyone who loves the finer things in craft! This exciting event takes place during the gallery exhibition Twisted, which is showcasing exciting craft-based artists. The exhibition will be open during the event, plus there will be taster workshops from our Arts Courses programme that will introduce new people to craft, whilst showing original, inspiring ideas and techniques to seasoned makers. Workshops will include embroidery, using clay and working with flamboyant fashion. There are some fantastic makers around today, with craft experiencing a real revival in contemporary culture — from boutique to high street fashion, make do and mend ethics has crept into high-end art. We are revealing and promoting these creators in a boutique craft and makers market, which will be a major component of Twist & Make. We've invited 30 craft-makers to apply to show and sell their wares at the event...
