A “Furniture Pop Up Shop” is set to take place on 11th and 12th of October in Willow Bank Bowling Club situated just off Byres Road.
The event will give designers from different creative backgrounds the opportunity to promote their work to the public and other designers within the industry.
Founder of the ‘Furniture Pop Up Shop’ Sarah Johnstone said ‘ Gaining experience in this type of environment is critical to the creative industry, giving individuals starting out on their business the perfect location to promote their talents and sell their products alongside other established businesses – a platform they may not be able to afford on their own.’
Local designer Amy, who is delighted to be a part of the first Furniture Pop Up Shop in Glasgow said ‘’Sarah approached me about the possibility of joining her and a select team of designers and makers in the pop up furniture shop in Glasgow. As I have just graduated from University, this is an excellent opportunity for me to start up my own brand of interior textiles – Looks Like Lyla. It’s been great to be able to converse with makers and designers that are in a similar position as myself and using our new connections we can all build a fantastic creative network around us. I hope that this event in October will allow me to progress my brand further and in the future I will be able to dedicate more time and focus into making Looks Like Lyla a successful interior textiles and stationery brand.‘’
