Creative Lancashire Hub at BOB North

For BOB North, Creative Lancashire have curated a space showcasing some of the best, new and emerging makers from the region, working in collaboration with partners including the Best of Britannia team and the Crafts Council.

Creative Lancashire have helped to develop the careers of  some of the most talented designer makers and visual artists from the region.  For three days only during BOB North we're profiling some of the  established makers that we have worked with over the years, alongside the next generation of exciting new talent.

"Creative Lancashire have consistently supported makers and creators to show and sell their work to new audiences. There is an wealth  of great design and creative talent on our doorstep, and around the region. The Creative Lancashire Hub at BOB North is a way to take that talent out of the studio and into the heart of the city."  Jenny Rutter: Executive Director - They Eat Culture & former curator of Pad Gallery, Preston.
