Shop Local: Lab Shop

Made in Bristol are launching an exciting new shop this Saturday 14 February to celebrate Bristol's post as European Green Capital for 2015.  The shop will be popping up on Canons Road, on the city's harbourside, and will feature Made in Bristol's innovative Bristol inspired product range, alongside a selection of artwork reflecting the Green Capital themes.

The first theme is transport, so expect hand drawn bicycles, hand printed ferries, balloon filled skies and fleets of ferries.

Following the first installation, the Lab Shop will turn its hand to nature, food, resources and energy.

A jolly good handful of Drawn in Bristol image-makers will be taking part and selling their wares, including Chris Dickason and Lucy Davey, whose illustrations are pictured above, and Simon Tozer below.
