This is Brighton! Makers fair celebrates diversity and creativity

On Saturday 22 & Sunday 23 July, Paper Daisy events will be celebrating Brighton’s diverse creative community at this special Summer weekender event at Wagner Hall and Fig Tree Garden. The event will allow you to shop from and meet over sixty talented makers, designers and creatives. They embody the thriving artistic scene that Brighton is renowned for, each member of the market hand picked for their high quality and uniqueness. 

Find an array of handcrafted goodies on offer such as ceramics, homewares, jewellery, art, glasswork, textiles, self-care plus more. Stop for a drink and a bite to eat at the pop-up licensed garden bar and artisan cafe. It is the perfect place to discover Brighton’s creativity this Summer with free entry for the whole family to explore. 

Meet a few of the exhibitors!

I Heart Pop Art will get you talking! Jared’s artwork is all about fun, stopping the show and colour. Inspired by Andy Warhol, he presents the ‘normal’ in surprising & unexpected ways.

“Brighton’s always buzzing but it’s even more of a vibe over summer. I’m really excited to showcase new and popular pop art prints and gifts to our fabulous local community as well as tourists at the Paper Daisy Maker & Design Fair. Wagner Hall is a great venue in a fantastically central location and there’s always tons of “eye-candy” on display in terms of interesting things to buy” – Jared Orlin, trading as iHeart Pop Art.

Also exhibiting is Studio Everett. Abi is an artist that embraces colour! With an instantly recognisable style, she creates bold, striking and playful illustrations from prints to murals and is the designer behind Paper Daisy’s recent rebrand!
