These new designers are either currently studying, recent graduates or newly emerging and this opportunity will bring their beautiful work into the spotlight. This exhibition will guide you around the Centre, allowing you to discover our innovative Future Makers work within our resident makers studios.

Ralph Shuttleworth – Studio 10

Freja Burgess – Studio 21

‘Future Makers 2018’ will run throughout the Centre between 08/02/2018 – 31/03/2018. Find our innovative Future Makers work in a selection of our resident makers studios.
