Made In The Shade; The Maisonette

Article by Alexandra Fiddes | 15 Oct 2009

In the last weekend of October the Made In The Shade Maisonette (or little house) opens its doors to the public. The Maisonette will not only become a permanent home for the Glasgow based craft collective, but a platform for Scottish creative design talent, and a showcase of carefully handpicked international work. Situated in a dinky unit on the newly reopened upper floor of Glasgow’s independent institution, De Courcy’s Arcade, The Maisonette will be a showcase space, gallery, classroom and retail outlet rolled into one dynamic little bundle. Designers on board for Autumn/Winter '09 at include Donna Wilson, Angharad Jefferson, Lorraine Linton (INTO Textiles) Cosima Sempill (Kitty & Dude) and will also feature an exhibition from illustrator Jennifer Nicolson. A series of events from the 11th-14th of November month include creative craft workshops and the Tiny Glasgow Fashion Week.
