News for June 2016

We're sorry to see our Associate member Seren Papercuts leave, but we'd like to welcome a new Associate Meg McGregor aka Nutmeg Glass. She's not a stranger to designermakers21 as she has exhibited in the Showcase before. Have a look at her beautiful blown glass work on her page.

There's a lot happening in Diss in the coming month. The carnival takes place on Sunday 12th June, and on the 19th June the Cyclathon(click for more details) begins.

As part of the Cyclathon Holly Dawson, a member of the Corn Hall Arts Award group who operate from DM21 has organised an outdoor art exhibition featuring over forty decorated bicycle wheels that form a trail through the town in the shop windows. Some of our members have contributed their own designs for wheels and they will be displayed in the windows of DM21. The wheels will be in place on the 12th June and go down on the 26th June.

We hope that you will come and see the fantastic work done by Designer Makers and all the other artists who have contributed to this unique exhibition.
