Makers House

Where it began

In August 2018 Makers House launched on the first floor of The Designerie.

It is a creative hub where designer makers collaborate to make, market, educate, support and build a vibrant space on the Causeway Coast.

Linen Lane

The chance discovery of one of the last working linen mills in Northern Ireland led to the creation of Linen Lane. Jill Gurney has had a long career in interiors and textiles and has strong family links to linen as both her grandfathers grew flax.

the collaboration

In 2021, a collaboration was formed with Ulster University continuing our commitment to support small businesses in the arts and creative sector.

We welcome the talent that Belfast School of Art have nurtured and have helped grow in their business journey, and the team at The Designerie and Makers House will now support them as they showcase their work on the beautiful North Coast.
