Founded in 2017 by  Rebecca Carr and John Hollington, Effects is a modern market for designers by designers, and aims to showcase established and emerging talent from across the UK, and from a range of industries.

With an emphasis on sustainable design and thoughtful fabrication,  work ranges from lighting, furniture and homewares, through to ceramics, jewellery and textiles. The show aims to bring to a wide audience; thoughtful, quality, sustainable design with beauty and longevity


Effects 2018 is this year teaming up with CoCA (York Art Gallery) and the Craft Potters Association to bring ‘Ceramics + Design Now’ to York, a city wide festival with events, workshops, talks and two selling exhibitions - Effects Design Market and York Ceramics Fair.

This festival of modern craft and design (which takes place over the first weekend of October 2018) will offer a growing audience the opportunity to engage more closely with material, meet designers, and explore more widely a global movement towards sustainable, low impact - high quality craft and design.
