Urban Makers Perks is a small business support scheme, created to reward our loyal designer makers with discounts, promotions and to introduce them to our inspirational partners. We are approached daily by unique businesses, offering discounts on their products and support services and now we can share these with you. We hope these perks are just what you need to help your business thrive.
It’s only £40 for 6 months. If you would like to apply to join please fill out this form. Please allow up to 7 working days for a reply.
Selection is based on the same criteria as our markets. We love original, well made, inspired design and we require that the products you sell are designed by you, handmade or made locally to you. If they are made and produced elsewhere they must be ethically sourced and kind to the environment.
