ARTIST OPPORTUNITY

 BORED BOARD NEEDS AN UPLIFT!

MADE in East Lothian is delighted to offer a new commissioning opportunity to visual artists.

We have a large blank board outside our Hub premises in Haddington, approximately 2.4 metres square, which we would like decorated with a series of 3 images (each for a 2 month period).

Please note, these works will NOT be permanent as they will be painted over for the next image to be added.

Artists are invited to submit a proposal for selection. The only guidance is that your proposal should relate to Haddington in some way either celebrating the past, present, or future of the town, and should be painted or collaged ie. in materials that can be worked over.

We are offering a commission fee of £500 to each artist. This will be shared if you are working in collaboration with another artist.

Please email your submissions with a sketch, your contact details and links to your website and social media to madeineastlothian@gmail.com.

Deadline for submissions: Friday 18th June @ 5pm

GOAT TRAIL 2020

No kidding! Haddington stirred up its very own Goat Trail in 2020.

MADE in East Lothian secured Area Partnership funding for this fun collaborative project. With plenty goaty puns – we loved them all from Vincent Van Goat to Nanny State to Holistic Kid and beyond – and some colourful design, 12 fibreglass goats were decorated by local artists, families, school and community groups. They were displayed shops, the library and cafe around our town in Autumn 2020.

WEE FAIR MAKERS MARKET

MADE’s monthly makers market at Tyninghame Wee Hall is back, and offers a wonderful summer showcase for artists and local makers.

Makers of glasswares, stained glass, wood homewares, handmade cards, photography and screenprints, natural perfumes and soaps – and we all love Sockpals – are all welcome to show and sell.

You can also discover the beautiful, historic village of Tyninghame, close to East Linton, North Berwick AND Dunbar. At the Tyninghame Smithy cafe opposite, you can lunch whilst sitting in their lovely garden. Closeby, the beaches around Tyninghame Bay attract wintering and migratory birds.

Tables are available for our summer markets now. Please contact us on madeineastlothian@gmail.com for availability updates.
