ARTS HUB

At the MADE Arts Hub at 21a Hardgate, Haddington, we offer 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.

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 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.

A selection of work in the gallery is available to buy online.

EXHIBIT WITH US

MADE promotes the work of East Lothian artists and craftmakers in our curated gallery at the Arts Hub, online and at the monthly Makers’ Market in Tyninghame.

If your work fits and is of a high standard, why not apply to exhibit with us.

Please email madeineastlothian@gmail.com, including at least five images of your current work.

We’ll need titles, medium, sizes and retail prices. And if your work is currently being exhibited or is on sale locally, we’d like to know that too.

DONATE

The local community has kindly supported MADE by donating furniture, art materials and other items that we can re-use, upcycle or sell to raise funds. At the moment, we are looking for,

  • wooden furniture such as chest of drawers, small tables, dining chairs
  • fabric, wools, buttons, buckles
  • good quality paint
  • art and craft materials.

(Unfortunately, we can’t take on big upholstery projects such as armchairs or sofas.)

If you have anything in mind, get in touch.

WORKSHOPS

Autumn always inspires our creativity, and with longer nights, we seem to have more time for art and craft. Our new programme of workshops at the Arts Hub encourages you to #trysomethingnew.

UPCYCLING

Upcycling and creative reuse are central to MADE’s mission. Donated furniture and materials are upcycled inhouse and made available for sale in the Makers’ Gallery. These provide us with a valuable source of income and inspire the participants to our popular Upcycling Projects workshops.
