Dundee-based pop-up events platform Tea Green has hosted hundreds of talented independent artists and designers in beautiful locations around Scotland in markets offering high quality, hand-crafted products by artisans from across the country, giving visitors the opportunity to browse and buy work direct from a wide range of craftmakers.

This year there are 20 Tea Green events, compared to 13 in 2023. Founder Joanne MacFadyen, a graduate of Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design, is also opening her first dedicated studio in the creative hub of Dundee’s Meadow Mill. She says, ‘I saw that the retail sector was changing. While there is less disposable income around, we’re seeing more conscious consumers making mindful and considered purchases. They may be buying less, but choosing to focus on quality, hand-crafted products. Buying from independents isn’t transactional. It’s emotional and personal. People want to connect, discover how and where goods are made and hear the designer’s story.’
