The Pop-Up Makers is a diverse group of Edinburgh-based designers, makers, crafters, and artists. They function as a collective in bi-annual Pop-Up events with the shared aims of supporting and celebrating hand-made and slow-made goods.
The Pop-Up Makers represent a wide variety of artistic practices including bookbinding, hand-embroidery, basket weaving, soap making, graffiti painting, garment making, jewellery, wood work, candle making and pottery.
The Pop-Up Makers was founded in 2018 and held its first market as a Christmas Craft Shop at the White Space Gallery in Edinburgh, Scotland.
The Pop-Up Makers has been working in collaboration with the White Space Gallery since their first pop-up market in December 2018.
They are an official 2019 "Fringe Listing" for the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, the largest Arts festival in the world.
