Calling all South West designers, manufacturers, artists and skilled craftspeople.

Posted on: 1 August 2019

The Museum of Barnstaple and North Devon is looking for manufacturers, designers, artists and skilled craftspeople to supply products for sale in their brand new museum shop.

They want to stock a range of items, featuring commercial products made locally in the South West and would be particularly interested in items that reference their collections of silver, natural history, pottery and wood working.

Leader of North Devon Council, Councillor David Worden, says: “With the new extension nearing completion, exciting times are ahead for the museum.  The new shop will be a fantastic outlet for commercial products that are designed and manufactured around the region.”

Alison Mills, Manager of The Museum of Barnstaple and North Devon, says: “We are all very excited about the new extension which will give us a much larger shop than we had previously. This will give us an amazing opportunity to showcase a range of beautiful products for sale, made right here in the South West.”

The museum is currently closed while work continues on the exciting new Long Bridge Wing extension, and is due to re-open in Autumn 2019 with a brand new social history gallery, larger shop, café and improved education space.

If you think you have a product that would appeal to the museum’s varied audience of local visitors and tourists, then please get in touch by emailing: trudy.weston@northdevon.gov.uk.

    My partner does Pyrography onto wood. He does this all by hand and recreates the outstanding beauty of Devon. If you are interested we could send you some photos of some of his work
