2019 started with a bang as House of Quinn was invited to take part in the Toast New Makers programme.
After submitting at application to Toast we soon found out that House of Quinn had been selected to be part of an amazing opportunity. Working with the Toast team and being offered the chance to showcase and retail our signature quilts within their stores and online.
Coming together with four other makers, House of Quinn quilts sit amongst an offering of beautifully designed objects for the home. A seletion of ceramics, wood work and textiles created by some of the newest design talent within contemporary craft.
The collection has launched online and featured on the Toast Website.
The experience so far has been incredible. House of Quinn was invited to attend a studio day hosted by the Toast creative and marketing team. We met up in London at Laboratory studio’s in Clapton where we met for the first time.
Entering the space with a mixture of excitment and trepidation I was greeted by some amazing people and all the nerves disapated as the Toast team worked with myself and the other makers to shoot our products and us! There was a photography crew who talked us into having our portraits taken (a daugnting task for anyone like me who hates their photos, I am sure many related to this) and the creative team who talked to us about our products before we all sat down to a makers lunch.
Seated around a long table, we were treated to a spread of amazing homemade food and the opportunity to ask questions and talk to the Toast team. They talked to us about everything from design to marketing to working with makers around the world. It was such an interesting day and the team looked after us and supported us in what were the next steps in getting our collections ready for the launch of Toast New Makers.
The Collection of objects is availiable on the Toast website and select Toast stores.
