Lustre

Preview our 2012 makers here

Whether you’re revitalising your home, updating your look or seeking out that unique Christmas gift, you’ll find all the inspiration you need at Lustre, one of the highest quality craft events in the UK. During this special weekend at Lakeside you’ll find 55 of the country’s finest contemporary craft makers, selling everything from fine jewellery, bags and hats to sculptural vases and tableware. Each maker taking part has been specially selected by a panel of experts for the quality and uniqueness of their craft, and each will be on hand to talk to you about the ideas and techniques behind their work. As in previous years the selection includes a high percentage of first-time exhibitors alongside familiar makers introducing new lines of stock to keep the market perennially fresh. Lustre also gives you a sneak preview of some of the most cutting edge work coming out of the region’s universities. Everything at Lustre is on sale, and interest free loans are available thanks to the Arts Council’s Own Art scheme.
