An empty Diss shop has become home to an eclectic group of craftspeople.

The former Albright shop in St Nicholas Street has been renamed DesignerMakers@21.

Set up by Diss Corn Hall Trust with help from the Ipswich and Diss Area Quakers which owns the building, the project launches today and tomorrow, from 10am to 4pm.

Thereafter it will open on Fridays or by appointment.

Starting with five craftspeople in residence, it hopes to build to 12.

Annette Rolston and Antonia Leverell make hand-printed cushions and womenswear; Kim Marangon offers weaving, spinning and knitwear; Debbie McColl does hand-painted furniture and Kathy Scott creates 3D textile sculpture.
