Christmas Fair – November 2008
Made in Hastings will showcase a selection of their best creations ranging from original paintings, functional pottery, hand-printed textiles, knitting, hand-bound notebooks and other delightful products. Come and meet us on our stand between the 12th and 16th of November 2008 at the Country Living Christmas Fair.
Judith Rowe (potter) joined a collective of six women artists called Made in Hastings. The group makes modern homeware, from modish bird aprons to colourful ceramics.

Makers and Shakers – August 2007
“Strength in numbers in numbers is the simple but sound philosophy behind the success of Made in Hastings, a unique shop in the heart of Hastings’ historic Old Town. Run by six local women artists and makers it has been drawing lovers of handmade treasures form far and wide since first opening its doors in June 2004.”
Hearts & Crafts – May/June 2007
“Made in Hastings is the sort of shop that every little girl would like to own when she grows up. Behind its pretty, pastel-painted façade, the shelves are laden with beautiful, hand-made things. There are stripy and spotted ceramics, fabric covered notebooks and girly (but grown up) accessories of every sort. The baby clothes are pretty and practical (no hand washing required), with tiny dresses that are perfect for special occasion. Toys are brightly coloured and unusual; in short, there’s a gift for every event. And what’s so lovely about it all is, as it’s name denotes, that virtually everything on sake has been made locally.”
Style Slave – April 2005
Take Sophie Azimont’s gorgeous notebooks and photo albums: made by hand and bound in fabric, each one is different, which in a time of mass-manufactured sameness makes them a thing to treasure. Judith Rowe’s ceramic jugs, represent the quiet end of the spectrum, and have a very appealing country kitchen aesthetic.
