Lustre will entice shoppers from all over the Midlands and beyond.

This is Lustre’s 14th year, and it will feature the work of more than 65 of the most talented arts and craftmakers from right across the country.

Nottingham Lakeside Arts has selected some of the country’s top makers including Kit Anderson and Anna Collette Hunt.

One of the many talented makers attending is Designed in England, a collective of British makers, which will be showcasing innovative home accessories at the event. All the homeware items are British-made and feature quirky, individual pieces.

Shona Powell, director at Lakeside, said: “Lustre has become an eagerly anticipated event in the creative calendar and this year is no exception. All of the makers have been selected by a panel of experts and all excel in their craft making Lustre a must-attend event.

“As in previous years, we have a high percentage of first-time exhibitors taking part, this is because Lustre strives to show a diverse array of creative minds.

“A must-see this year will definitely be the Young Meteors gallery, which will showcase the most cutting-edge work produced by graduates in the UK. We are excited to open the doors to Lustre in November and we are certain that there will be something for everyone at this year’s event.”

Lustre is one of the most sophisticated, sought after events for artists and designers.

“There will be hundreds of unique and designer items on sale. From sumptuous soft furnishings to ceramics, jewellery, bags and scarves, glass, woodwork, furniture and leather, there are so many beautiful one-off items that you won’t find on the high street,” added Shona.

Lustre takes place at Nottingham Lakeside Arts, DH Lawrence Pavilion and Djanogly Art Gallery, Nottingham University Park.
