Meet our artists, makers and creatives

We proudly present to you our artists, makers and creatives. They are the life blood of Shoreline, exhibiting, selling and teaching in Westgate Galleria and The Eclectic Art Gallery, Margate, and some participate in Margate Made’s pop-up events too. They are a diverse group, working in a very wide range of disciplines and mediums, but all share a passion for their art and a commitment to creating high quality, well-made, artisan products that will give much pleasure to their new owners.
