Passionate about promoting creativity here in Norfolk: Make Holt.
Situated in Shirehall Plain in the centre of Holt, Make Holt is a unique lifestyle store, featuring a collection of curated craft by over 40 makers from Norfolk and nearby. Expect timeless, handmade goods for the home that embrace the natural beauty of the materials.
Make Holt was set up in December 2020 by Aviva Leigh, who had been running maker’s markets in Norwich and North Norfolk since 2016. Aviva recognised there was an opportunity to provide a permanent home for these makers in a retail setting. All the work is selected by Aviva and presented in a carefully curated and inspiring way within the shop.
The interior of the building has been stripped back to reveal textures of brick and flint and ancient wood, which form a perfect backdrop for the hand made work. Natural materials, many sourced locally, are found in ceramics, wood, glass and textiles, all displaying ‘the touch of the hand’ and the little imperfections which make them unique. The work is also all available to buy online.
Aviva is passionate about promoting creativity and hopes to introduce workshops and events at Make Holt to encourage and inspire one’s own creative journey. New makers are welcome to apply to sell their work by contacting Aviva through the website.
Open Tuesday to Sunday (and Bank Holidays) 10am to 4pm.
