Lustre 2018

Saturday 3 & Sunday 4 November
DH Lawrence Pavilion & Djanogly Gallery


An eagerly anticipated landmark on Nottingham’s arts calendar, Lustre is a friendly, relaxed, contemporary craft and design fair, where you can buy everything from artisan jewellery and bags to ceramics, glass and tableware.

If you love crafts that are handmade, individual and beautiful, then Lustre is a must for you. Buy or commission work direct from over 80 of the UK’s finest established and emerging designer/makers. Each has been specially selected for the quality and uniqueness of their craft, and each will be on hand to talk to you personally about the ideas and techniques behind their practice.

Returning to Lustre this year is Hothouse+ providing a showcase for the cream of last year’s talented applied arts graduates – the rising stars of tomorrow. As in previous years, the YOUNG METEORS gallery presents the most cutting-edge work produced by a crop of 2018 UK graduates.

With Christmas just around the corner, get a head start and buy unique gifts unavailable anywhere on the high street.

University of Nottingham staff members & students have free entry to Lustre. Please show your UoN card on entering. Offer not applicable on tickts already purchased.
