MADE NORTH aims to take all that is positive and accepted about the north of England – industry, honesty and innovation – and give it a combined brand, voice and outlet. At the heart of MADE NORTH is the amassed talent and creativity of designers and makers in the north of England.

Their exhibition programme features a range of work by some of most exciting designers and makers from the North of England. The programme showcases contemporary design and craft by both established and emerging designers such as: Deadgood, DesignedMade, Anthony Hartley, Ilsa Parry (REthinkthings), Polly Westergaard, David Irwin, John Green, Superfauna, RASKL, Swifty Scooters, Jim Leach, Bettina Nissen, Turner & Harper, and Ellen Thomas.

The network of designer/makers showcase the finest quality contemporary designs, materials, skills and products the north of England as to offer. They carefully curate their selection and seek out designer/makers and objects that illustrate a sense of place and provenance from the region and it’s accepted values of industry, honesty, integrity and innovation.

Gallery curator and director of Culture North Patrick Murphy says: “The need for a gallery that promotes the north and its designer/makers is essential in today’s culture. A sense of place and provenance is becoming increasingly important in a world fast losing regional individuality in the face of globalisation. Instead of each city or region looking the same we want to celebrate difference; instead of high volume and low costs using oversees manufacturing, we want to see a return to responsible ‘local’ manufacturing and fair pricing that rewards the design/makers, encourages innovation and ideas and in turn supports the northern economy.”
