ARTS HUB AND GALLERY
At MADE in East Lothian’s Arts Hub and Gallery, we offer a range of activities. It is a venue for events and workshops and a reuse hub for art and craft 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.
Where: 21a Hardgate, Haddington // When: Tuesday to Saturday, 10am to 5pm
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 in East Lothian 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 firstname.lastname@example.org, 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.
The local community has kindly supported MADE in East Lothian by donating furniture, art materials and other items that we can re-use, upcycle or sell to raise funds. We’re happy to accept,
- 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.
Our programme of workshops at the Arts Hub encourages you to #trysomethingnew. It focuses on creative art and craft skills. Recycled Paper Making is a joyously messy craft with an elegant outcome. Mixed Media and Creative Writing are contemplative, and who doesn’t need bunting when the sun comes out. Make your own! Find out more and book.
Upcycling and creative reuse are central to MADE in East Lothian‘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.
