MoonMade Pop Up Shop

MoonMade is a pop up shop which is appearing around Dundee from June to October. It is located within the Hannah Maclure Centre at the moment but its location will vary over the coming months- sometimes taking over a vacant shop for as little as a weekend.

MoonMade supports and promotes local artists and makers by selling their goods while at the same time raising money and awareness of the charity Youth- Link Dundee. Youth-Link Dundee work with children who are at risk of becoming socially isolated, ages ranging from 5 - 18. Children are supported through group work or through one to one befriending. I have been a befriender myself since March this year- not with Youth-Link but with Families First in St Andrews so know a bit about this role and how important it is. I love the idea behind MoonMade in that its supporting a great cause as well as local crafts people- even the owners of the empty shops benefit by having their property showcased- so if you're in Dundee pop in!

You can see some of the artwork I have for sale in the second photo- the two framed pictures on the third shelf. Emily Moir has also put six of my smaller artworks on the wall which was lovely to see- click on Emily to see her work and find out more.


  1. I've not heard of pop up shops - good idea :)

  2. It's fab, I was lucky enough to meet Emily at the West Fest and her stuff is beautiful. I really must get in to see it all. Especially as I only work round the corner!
