We had five excellent films made by Muswell Hill filmmaker Amanda Stockley, which beautifully captured the making process for Jess, Michele, Rob, Shelley and Isabella. We held our first ever exhibition at the Ply Gallery at the iconic Hornsey Town Hall which was a huge success.
Our curated designer maker markets in St James Square were expanded to include some fantastic guest stallholders and we introduced a new market date in September. Given their popularity among the good people of Muswell Hill, we are looking to expand them further in 2018.
We have been delighted with the appreciation and support for independent designer makers and this was highlighted in having exceeded 1,000 followers on Twitter in 2017!
Behind the scenes, working as a collective continues to be productive, informative, supportive and great fun for Muswell Hill Creatives. As a way of working, we would thoroughly recommend it.
Here's some of the members' highlights:
Rob: "MHC has helped me immeasurably with developing my product and website since I started and helped me to focus on the important parts of presenting my business professionally."
Tracey: ".....joining such a lovely group and being able to move the business on with all their support; getting to 200 sales on Etsy, when I’d been aiming for 100 - and going back to designing and making full-time after having a really good season."
Isabella: ".....moving to a new shared studio with a great community & lots of energy and adding Majolica flower designs to my range."
Michele: "Converting my website to a commerce site has been a great highlight for me."
Shelley: "HRH Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie both wearing a Goldust Millinery hats this year and the launch of my fedora range."
Jo: "I was delighted when the hire company Granger Hertzog selected eight of my graphic prints. I'm looking forward to spotting them on the sets of film, television, fashion, interiors and events! Also exhibiting and selling a collection of my abstract paintings, a direction I want to pursue next year, at the MHC Curve Exhibition at the PLY Gallery."
Elvira: "Setting up my own website, becoming a Not on the High Street partner and building my collection, all helped by the wonderful support from my fellow MHC members."
Sam: "Getting planning permission and glassblowing studio built has been a major undertaking this year. I'm really excited about getting up and running with workshops in 2018!"
Rachel: "Our markets are always fantastic for me as I get to see new and longstanding customers. It's great to be part of a thriving local creative community and this is invaluable to the continued success of my business."
Jess: "I loved having the opportunity to create larger pieces of work for the Curve Exhibition and have been delighted to hear that my art is becoming well recognised in Muswell Hill and around."
