Applications for our Makers Market are currently closed as we are are working behind the scenes planning our next event. Want to take part? We will be announcing lots more details in the coming months and how you can get involved and apply to our next Makers Market. Be sure to sign up to our mailing list to hear the news.


We are rather delighted to have been invited to work in partnership with Nithraid this year and organise a Makers Market at this years event. The Guild took part in the event last year to spread the word about our campaign. We are excited about making plans with them so we can bring a Dumfries Makers Market to this fun, family festival that takes place on and around the river. Nithraid is a celebration of the town’s long relationship with its river, highlighting the way the Nith connected Dumfries to the rest of the world through trade, goods (including Coos) and sail power. It is created and produced by The Stove Network. Working in partnership with their festival team, our Makers Market will play host to a creative community of makers, food & beverage producers and home-grown brands from our region and beyond.


Visitors will be able to enjoy a whole host of marvellous makers plus hands on masterclasses led by experts, where you can learn a new skill or craft in our Market Marquee! Enjoy shopping for something a little bit different, unique and handmade. Get the chance to meet the makers and chat with them personally about their designs and inspiration. Absorb the festival atmosphere in our cosy marquee, meet with friends and enjoy a fabulous day out at Nithraid. Lets hope its a sunshiney day.


We hope that you'll come down to the River Nith in Dumfries on Saturday 31st August,

so save the date!
