I recently discovered that The Makery in Barugh Green is run by the staff and students from Greenacre School, a school in Barnsley for children and young people aged 3-19 with severe and complex needs.
It is such a lovely space - half of the shop is stocked with high quality, crafted items made by both local makers and the learners at Greenacre. The other half is laid out as a vintage inspired cafe, serving homemade cakes and afternoon teas. With it's open plan layout, it's nice to see the table at the back, behind the counter area, where students learn together and where crafting sessions for children's birthday parties take place. It has a lovely, calm atmosphere and a perfect place to stock my work I thought.
The Makery has stocked a selection of my
illustration prints, colouring books and mugs.
