ARTS HUB

Our home on Haddington’s Hardgate – the ARTS HUB – offers a range of activities. It is a venue for events and workshops and a centre for creative reuse of donated materials. It’s also a gallery.

You also might like to know that we offer regular sessions for adults with additional support needs and mental health issues. For more information, please get in touch.


MAKERS GALLERY:

Our Makers’ Gallery at 21a Hardgate, Haddington offers a high street showcase for artists and makers living and/or working in East Lothian.

Pop in for a browse; we’ve gathered an interesting range of original artworks and craft. Painting. Ceramics. Wood-works. Jewellery. Glass. Prints. Textiles. Up-cycled. Maybe you need a greetings card, we have a super selection.  And if you don’t see just the right thing, we’d be very happy to assist you to commission a bespoke work.

Exhibit With Us

We’re expanding our Makers’ Gallery here at MADE in East Lothian – in our Arts Hub, at the monthly Wee Market and on our new online shop (opening mid-August).

We currently support a talented group of artists and makers working in East Lothian. All mediums are included in this curated exhibition, but because of our commitment to recycling, upcycling and found at MADE, we’d love to see more work that is environmental.

If your work fits with this and is of a high standard, please send us an email., including at least 5 images of your current work. We’ll need titles, medium, sizes and, if you can, retail prices. And if your work is currently being exhibited or on sale locally, we’d like to know that too.

Please email submissions to madeineastlothian@gmail.com.

Thanks for your time, and we look forward to hearing from you.


WORKSHOP SPACE:

Our versatile space is used for community group meetings as well as our daily programme of workshops and drop-in groups at affordable prices.


COMMUNITY GROUPS:

The regular groups that meet in the Hub have evolved in response to demand, and are an essential part of the MADE community.

We’re working on a new community calendar which considers the needs and safety of our community friends. Watch this space.

 


UPCYCLING & REUSE:

The reuse of donated furniture and materials which are used in projects or upgraded for resale is essential to the success of the Hub. Thursdays have a particular focus on upcycling with regular 1:1 tutored furniture projects and the Shed group. The open access workspaces are available for rent for individual projects with use of donated materials.
