DESIGNER MAKER at The Project Space, Newport

DESIGNER MAKER at The Project Space, Newport

DESIGNER MAKER – 5th July 2014

To coincide with Independents’ Day in 2014, The Project Space is very proud to present DESIGNER MAKER, a pop-up market in the heart of Commercial Street providing a platform for creative and independent sellers in Newport, South Wales.

Independents’ Day is a celebration of independent retailers on high streets across the UK, encouraging communities to support small businesses in their area and celebrate the valuable contribution they make to the local economy. On the 4th July 2014, the Independent’s day campaign will encourage the
general public to buy at least one item from their local independent shops.

This monthly pop-up market allows us to support people who make and sell handcrafted items to sell in the heart of Newport’s retail district, as well as offering our community the chance to buy something original and unique. We want to highlight the importance of artists being active and visible in our
community, and their involvement in regenerating the city centre.

The event runs from 10 am – 4 pm on Saturday 5th July at The Project Space, and thereafter on every first Saturday of the month. DESIGNER MAKER is set to become a regular feature in The Project Space’s programme of events.

If anyone is interested in selling at future events, please contact The Project Space on
