Dickies Workwear is a Gold sponsor of this year’s Makers Central, as part of its ongoing campaign to celebrate the passion and skills of tradespeople who inspire others with their dedication and ingenuity.

Now in its third year, Makers Central will be held at The NEC, Birmingham, on 2 and 3 May and is aimed at bringing together makers, creators, hobbyists and artists from all over the world. From furniture makers and woodturners to metalworkers, famous YouTubers, and creators, a vast range of the global maker community is represented at the Show.

As well as selling some of its most iconic products, Dickies will be holding interactive workshops at its stand with Rachel Millar, a signwriter and lettering artist based in Glasgow. Rachel has featured in Dickies’ recent Meet the Makers campaign, which celebrates the skill and ingenuity of those who make a living with their hands.

Specialising in designing and painting lettering by hand, Rachel uses a lot of colour in her work and works with perspective to create a 3D effect. She will be holding workshops for those interested in picking up some of her skills while painting their own coaster.

“We take pride in designing workwear that supports the makers of the world to do what they do best by offering them the comfort, safety and durability they need to focus on the task in hand – with designs that suit their individual image,” said James Whitaker, Marketing Director for Dickies.

“From tradespeople to those who make things as a hobby, we know there are many people who are really passionate about what they do and our Meet the Makers campaign has been a way of celebrating that. We’re excited to see the skills and talent in action at Makers Central.”

Dickies will be at stand E8 – opposite the YouTube area at Makers Central. For more information, including tickets, visit: https://www.makerscentral.co.uk/
