About.

Empowering local artists in the heart of our city.

 

WHERE IT BEGAN

MerseyMade’s mission since opening in Liverpool city centre in 2019 has been to support and empower local creatives by providing them with a permanent, physical space to sell their work. As of May 2024 MerseyMade Liverpool is closed whilst we look for a new premises, but we do have a shop in the coastal town of West Kirby which opened in July 2023.

Many moons ago when working in retail, our founder Vicky Gawith conceived the idea of MerseyMade and in 2019 those dreams became a reality, as she opened the doors for the first time at our flagship store on Paradise Street, Liverpool. Vicky’s background in project management combined with a resilience to push the concept through, despite all the obstacles that came her way, has all led her to the business that you see today.

SUPPORTING LOCAL

We understand the importance of community. That’s why people are at the heart of everything we do. MerseyMade is built on a foundation of inclusivity as we aim to provide a space where people are free to express their individuality and feel empowered to inspire one another. We are committed to flying the flag for local and independent businesses, from illustrators and designers to painters and potters and even bakers and chocolatiers!

We want everyone who enters our doors to feel part of the MerseyMade family, whether you’re an artist, maker, employee, regular coffee drinker, art lover or visiting for the very first time. MerseyMade is designed to be your home away from home!

UNIQUE CREATIONS FROM LOCAL CREATIVES

Our fundamental mission is to empower local artists and makers from within our region. That’s why every MerseyMade maker is based within fifty miles of our Liverpool (L1) postcode. When you shop with us, you know you’re supporting your local baker, crafter, illustrator, painter or even jeweller whilst never compromising on quality or craftsmanship.

MerseyMade currently showcases work from over 100 independent creatives and with that number growing, we can’t wait to see what the future holds for all of our talented artists.

INSPIRING CREATIVITY

Aside from supporting both emerging and established artists and makers, we also see the importance of encouraging creativity. Over the past few years, it has become even more apparent that creativity is vital for good mental health. So, whether you’ve never picked up a pencil or the thought of painting terrifies you, our creative workshops and events are designed with you in mind.

From painting courses to creative writing sessions, candle-making workshops, comedy nights and evening wine-tastings, we aim to provide memorable and enjoyable experiences for every special occasion!
