MADE IN EAST LOTHIAN
MADE is a social enterprise which supports artist’s, makers and the wider creative community in East Lothian. The organisation is based in the MADE Arts Hub in Haddington, a multipurpose space where we provide creative services, and address inequalities of opportunity by delivering art and craft activities to young people and disadvantaged groups in the community who benefit from social interaction with people who share common interests.
The creative reuse of donated furniture and materials is an important element of the Hub, both for art and craft projects and to generate income through resale to the public. There are three areas of work for the organisation: MADE Arts Hub – a creative space for the community MADE Community – groups and projects to engage local people MADE Markets – supporting local artists and makers.

THE ARTS HUB IS BACK FROM 28th APRIL!
There will be lots of new art and craft from local makers and the usual mix of creative workshops, markets and community events.
Community groups are unable to meet for now, but we can offer 1:1 tutored sessions and socially distanced workshops for up to four people when booked in advance.
We will continue to operate reduced opening hours 11am-4pm Wednesday-Saturday with social distancing measures in place to make sure that both staff and customers feel safe.
No kidding! Do you remember Cow Parade or Oor Wullie’s bucket trail? Well Haddington is stirring it up with its very own Goat Trail.
Made in East Lothian secured Area Partnership funding for this exciting project which had to be put on hold due to Covid 19. We’re delighted to say we have just taken delivery of 12 gorgeous fibreglass goats, prepped and ready to be embellished with art work.
We’re looking for proposals to decorate these goats from anyone that is interested whether you’re an individual artist/maker, a family, a group or any other variation on that theme – we have an application form ready, so if you’re interested download it here (Word doc 90KB) or pop in to the Hub at 21a Hardgate Haddington, we’re open Wednesday to Saturday 11-4) to pick up an application pack. The closing date for entries is Friday 18th September at 4 pm.
