Patrick founded MADE NORTH in 2011. MADE NORTH provides a creative platform that actively encourages and promotes understanding of contemporary northern design.
It represents a network of designer/makers who we collaborate with to showcase the finest quality contemporary designs, materials, skills and products the north of England has to offer. We carefully curate our selection and seek out designer/makers and objects that illustrate a sense of place, personality and provenance from our region and its accepted values of industry, honesty, integrity and innovation.
MADE NORTH brings together the industry in an annual design conference that brings together designers, design thinkers and manufacturers for a day of thought and debate provoking talks and networking. Patrick also curates and programmes Sheffield Design Week.
