A Selling Exhibition of Contemporary Design Crafts for Interiors

Top international Interior Designer Mark Gillett is confirmed as judge for the ‘SHAKER MAKER’ competition, which will give media exposure to the exhibitor who best exemplifies the term ‘Modern British Classic’.

“Mark and his team were the perfect choice for a judge from the world of Interior Design as his timeless interiors complement the standard of work produced by the exhibitors,” says Janine Fishwick (Event Director). “He has many years experience in the luxury market and understands the benefit of having beautiful objects in your environment which reflect your interests and personality.

He endorses his appreciation of contemporary design and traditional craftsmanship by actively encouraging the relationship between his clients and craftspeople. He revels in the fact that so many can benefit; Local industry in the form of a foundry, toolmaker, wood yard; A craft skill kept alive and skills passed down; The pleasure that is provided by a cherished item to the lucky individual that will finally own that piece of functional art.

He believes design must evolve with each generation as it has done throughout history and that products have to be made well using quality materials if they are to still be desirable for future generations and product such as this will be found on display at MAKERS.
