For some seriously classy retail therapy, head to the Secret Emporium, a fabulous collection of goodies to indulge in.
All artisans are chosen for originality in design, the bespoke nature of their products and their unique attention to detail.
The Collective includes……… artists / makers / fashion designers / miliners / jewelery designers / feather smiths / sculptors curiosity fabricators / vintage and recycled specialists / illustrators / printmakers / ceramicists.
They support young, up and coming designers by granting ‘scholarship’ pitches at each event providing them with a spring board to full launch. On average, at each event 3 pitches are awarded without charge.
Visitors to The Secret Emporium experience the hustle and bustle of an enchanting covered market: artisans host workshops, passionate designers engage with customers and the Emporium’s hosts ensure all are welcome. The Secret Emporium is a pioneering show-piece.
The Secret Emporium is a tailor-made experience: Artisans are chosen according to the profile of the festival audience. They achieve this through careful scouting and selection of designers, as opposed to the standard ‘open to all’ application process for traders.
So you can shop till you drop in real style this year!
