The Sheffield Makers Shop is nestled in a corner of the Sheffield Winter Garden in the heart of Sheffield City Centre. They exclusively sell items by makers and artists living in Sheffield who all work together to make the shop run. Sheffield has a thriving creative scene with many studio spaces, craft fairs and independent creative industries and this is their little way of showing that off to locals and visitors.
The shop began in November 2015 when a merry band of makers joined together to fill an empty shop unit in Sheffield Winter Garden. They decked the place with their wares for the Christmas season. After a successful month they decided to take the unit on permanently. More makers joined the shop which has now grown into a vibrant offering of Sheffield's creative talent. The physical shop is collaboratively run and staffed between the different makers.
