Reform Street Shop Update

Dundee Design Festival presents… Factory Shop was a great success one year on from launching the first Dundee Design Festival ‘Factory Residency Programme’ in partnership with Make Works. The exhibition, held on Reform Street in May 2018 and developed in partnership with Tilde Arts, featured prototypes and products made in factories by designers Dawn Youll, Florence Dwyer, and Tommy Perman & Simon Kirby.

We’d like to thank everyone who came to visit the exhibition, our fantastic volunteers for all of their help and Erika Stevenson for capturing the photographs featured below.

To those who have been asking whether or not we will be keeping on the shop in Reform Street for further design activity – we have recently been informed that another business will be taking over it and we wish them all the best. It was a brilliant space to utilise in the centre of town with our exhibition and workshops whilst it was unoccupied, but we are pleased the shop will be restored on a more permanent basis. As for the next instalment of Dundee Design Festival… watch this space!
