Make Industries

Sharon, Anne-Marie and Ali were part of an early pop-up in the former Peasgoods shop. All makers, they shared space with other designers and makers, and in each of three separate pop-ups they succeeded in creating an attractive co-operative-based shop.

In July 2014, they came to us proposing a different business model, whereby they would rent shelf space to a wide variety of local producers, and they tested that concept through the summer of 2014. Straight after the summer they took a lease on another empty shop, and six weeks later launched Make Industries.
