Made in Kings Heath aims to bring together artists living and working in the Kings Heath area of Birmingham to share, exhibit and promote their work. Founded by ceramicist Melanie Keevil and textile artist Emma Jackson, the first Made in Kings Heath event took place in the Autumn of 2014.
Melanie and Emma first met whilst living and working from their home studios on Highbury Road. They soon discovered that both Highbury Road and Kings Heath is populated by a large number of artists and designers working in a wide variety of creative disciplines.
The inaugural event was hosted at the Silversoles studio, and saw four artists with a Highbury Road connection exhibiting. Since its inception Made in Kings Heath has grown organically, expanding to include additional artist home-studios as venues and thirteen artists.
