This venue is now closed

Support your local independent creatives! A previously dormant sales office on Chapel Street in Salford has been transformed into Salford Makers SHOP, a pop-up shop by a collective of artists, designers, educators and makers based at Islington Mill.

Located in the midst of the city’s increasingly thriving creative community, SHOP will be a welcoming space (*serving free tea and coffee*) where a curated selection of high quality and affordable products made by established artists based at the Mill and further afield will be on sale. Expect to find textiles, lighting, ceramics, jewellery, clothing, accessories and more.

In contrast to your standard consumer experience, visitors to Salford Makers SHOP will also have the opportunity to meet the artists whose work is for sale, find out about their creative process and even get involved in making themselves.

As well as working on commissions, design projects and product development, Salford Makers operates as a social enterprise with a diverse participatory programme. As part of this, the pop-up will simultaneously serve as an inclusive space for members of the public and local community to collaborate on developing their own new products; “encouraging the development of new skills and skills sharing through making to support wellness and positivity” according to the collective’s founder Sally Gilford.

The unusual architecture of the building in which SHOP is temporarily housed will make it hard to miss – just look out for the comparative shoe box, encircled by a picket fence, amidst the sea of multi-storey apartment complexes that have sprung up along the street in recent years. Salford Makers has only been guaranteed the space for six months’, so we suggest you head down there fast, especially with Christmas drawing close.
