Some of the work by artists Deborah Toner which will be available at this weekend's pop up.

The pop up - which is bringing a host of crafty designer items for sale - everything prices at £25 or less - is being organised by Blick Studios.

25 Pop-Up first “popped up” in December last year in the lead up to Christmas as an experiment and an alternative to what was currently on offer in terms of craft fairs and stalls.

Inspired by the likes of Makers & Brothers, the team behind 25 set out to create a space that put different design labels together, beautifully curate the pop-up and remove some of the pressures of stall-selling for both the designers and the customers.

Alex Synge, one of the designers whose work will be featured tomorrow said: “I’m delighted to be included in the upcoming 25 pop-up in Derry and Belfast, after getting a warm reception at the inaugural 25 pop-up before Christmas.

“I’ve crossed paths with some hugely talented people through being involved in it, and am excited to be producing some new work just in time for this one too.”

A spokesperson for the 25 Team said: “As designers, we noticed a gap in the market for the retail of local design product, there is a strong craft industry in Northern Ireland who have been very proactive in self promotion and building events to showcase their products but not as much in the design community.”

Every item stocked is priced £25 or less, and the designers will receive 100% of the sale.
