On Saturday 30th November they will exhibit alongside artists taking part in the Kitchen Garden Christmas Fair & in The Shed, whilst on Sunday 1st December they will be in the Kitchen Garden Shop & The Shed.

Made in Kings Heath, is a not for profit organisation which helps artists and makers support one another to showcase their work and connect with local residents. Established by felt-maker, Emma Jackson and ceramic artist Melanie Keevil, this friendly and relaxed event is now in its sixth year.

The success of the event is reflected in its year on year success, evolving organically from

one studio opening to showcase four artists to becoming an art trail, encompassing home studios and local venues.  It is a great way for artists and residents to meet and see first hand where artists make their work, in a welcoming atmosphere. It also gives visitors an opportunity to support their local makers and source a unique variety of high quality, handmade work.

Look out for our event invitation coming out soon. We look forward to seeing you at the end of November!
