Each trader will be given a plus one ticket for friends and family and children 10 and under are free.

We are looking for 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 elsewhere they must be ethically sourced and kind to the environment. We encourage those makers who are able, to demonstrate the making process on their table. We will be undercover in the Urban Makers tent.
