It’s taken me some time to sit-down and write this post and I actually feel quite embarrassed that the Journal has become somewhat neglected this past 12 months. It’s no excuse really, but after becoming a father on the 10th January 2023 - the last year has flown by and my work-load became somewhat challenging (in a good way!) to say the least.
In September of 2023, an opportunity arose for Mamnick to expand. 95 square-meters of space become available in our current HQ of Stag Works - a grade-2 listed building in the heart of Sheffield’s heritage quarter. Built in 1881 by a Henry Wigfall, Stag Works was once a fully working silversmiths and it has been Mamnick’s home since I started the brand in 2013.
We have now opened the doors to LOFT, our concept store - bringing the people of Sheffield (and our online audience) a selection of brands to compliment and sit-alongside Mamnick, as well as a series of events and pop-ups by other brands and artists that share our love of products and our famous ethos of doing “one thing at a time, as beautiful as possible” (you can even get your hair cut by our in-house barber).
So far we have hosted a variety of events including a pop-up with our friend and local potter Carla Murdoch, a knife-markers exhibition with Warren Martin’s ‘Master Class’, as well as solo shows for Graham Hutchinson (collage) and Nick Newman (painting).
I’m aware than a large part of our audience do not live in Sheffield, but with regular opening hours we hope that if you’re passing by you will drop-in and see what we are doing in Little Sheffield - it is fast becoming the centre of the universe!
So far it’s been a great success and I hope it will continue!
Thank you again for continued support and interest in my brand! I couldn’t do it without you.
