Made in Nottingham 16th Jan-17th February

MADE IN NOTTINGHAM was a new successful venture by the gallery to help showcase and provide a market opportunity for some of Nottingham's most talented designers and makers!

A unique selection of accessories, individual one offs and unusual gifts showcase in the gallery alongside our photography show.
