New Makers

Celebrating and supporting creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship

Each year we seek five makers who use sustainable materials, demonstrate skilled craftsmanship, share an appreciation of texture and colour and have an understanding of thoughtful, functional design. Chosen by a TOAST panel, each New Maker is offered business and marketing advice, as well as a platform to sell their pieces until the end of the year, with full profits being returned to them.

Our New Makers for 2021 were jewellery designer Jodie Metcalfe, basket weaver Julie Gurr, ceramicist Kelsey Rose Dawson, product designer Aude Arago and sculptural artist Corrie Williamson.
