Quartermasters is a new quarterly market for the Jewellery Quarter, celebrating local talent at the community embedded 1000 Trades bar on Frederick Street.

Wanting to encourage people to shop local and handmade, the masters are bringing micro businesses to life in the first of a series of new quarterly markets on Saturday 12 November.

From leather, to traditional jewellery making, crochet and contemporary embroidery, a small roster of curated makers and artisans will be enabling local people to buy direct and in person, discovering some of the people behind the closed doors of the Jewellery Quarter and beyond.

Makers include:

Frilly Industries – a small business Saturday 100 company

Sparrow and Wolf – a local homewares designer

Gosia Weber – leather goods with nature inspired motifs

Sparklymouse – contemporary embroiderer

Tamsen Poole Ceramics – bringing ceramic jewellery and decorations

This Geek Love – pop culture crochet accessories

B18 Leather – hand painted leather goods

Rachel Whitehead Jewellery – traditional gold and silversmith

The Emma Press – a local independent small press book publisher


The first Quartermasters market takes places Saturday 12 November, 11am-5pm at 1000 Trades. For more information visit http://qtrmstrs.com/
