TOAST New Makers

TOAST New Makers

The TOAST New Makers Programme supports makers of all disciplines at the beginning of their artistic journey. From sculptural ceramics and oak nest boxes for the garden, to tea pots informed by traditional Japanese teaware, all have been created by hand and are made to order. Over the next couple of months, you can view our New Makers Collection in our Bath, Edinburgh, London Notting Hill and Oxford shops.

TOAST Circle

TOAST Circle

TOAST circle is a clothes swapping initiative which allows us to foster a more conscious, thoughtful and circular lifestyle. In our Bath, Edinburgh and London Notting Hill shops, you can bring back worn TOAST garments, share the stories of your garments, and exchange them for other to cherish and take home.

*Offer valid on 1st August only in all TOAST Shops except TOAST Mayfair. Minimum spend of £150 on full price items, excluding New Makers' pieces and gift cards. While stocks last.


Virtual Workshops

Workshops are free to attend but we are suggesting a voluntary donation of £5 which will go to Crafts Council UK to support the craft community in this changing landscape. These donations will help to fund their new Let's Craft campaign - helping to create Craft Packs for children most in need of support. The aim is to ensure that these children do not miss out on the health, wellbeing and educational benefits of creativity.

All you need to take part is a computer with a webcam and microphone. Please register using the links below to confirm your place.
