All the best in lifestyle and events for the North Notts region and beyond. We have a jam-packed May/June edition that covers a myriad of fantastic people in our area. There’s Wayne Caddy the renowned baker who teaches at the School of Artisan Food. We visit Julian Bray, an artist based in Mansfield, and we speed around to Jake Taylor and his lifelong obsession with the wheel. We also have a real treat with some lovely and light recipes from food demonstrator and home economist, Teresa Bovey. As the summer approaches we’ve tried to fit in a few of the festivals in the area, there’s a lot going on, so let’s get out and enjoy our region. We’ll see you out there!
We delve into the most minute detail of our local photomicrographer Spike Walker and his amazing world through the microscope. Travel writer and photographer Sally Outram has a walk that takes a path through Newark, perfect for a fresh spring day, and when you have worked up an appetite, Teresa Bovey has a wonderful lamb dish and chocolate mousse to inspire the chefs at home. Finally, to keep everyone feeling and looking their best, our resident beauty writer Sarah Louise makes colour play for the new season much less daunting, with advice and tips on makeup and products.
So let’s join in the spring time celebrations, there are lots to be excitied about, in particular two anniversaries in the coming months. The 1st of April marks 100 years of the Royal Air Force (RAF), the world’s first independent air force. Also this year it is the centenary of the Representation of the People Act, which granted some women the right to vote in British parliamentary elections for the first time! Two huge celebrations to be proud of, so look out for events near you. Newark Air Museum and The Workhouse at Southwell are just two of the venues taking part.
Happy New Year from all the team at Made.
In this issue we would like to introduce you to home economist and food demonstrator, Teresa Bovey. We have picked some winter warmers in our fashion section and our beauty columnist, Sarah Louise, has a few tips on keeping everything just as it should be in the winter months ahead.
There have been so many wonderful people to meet this issue, Richard Hartley spares us some time to tell us about his classical guitar making, Ye Olde Bell’s head chef makes a stunning dish for us and The National Trust welcomes us into Mr Straw’s House.
So, have fun exploring the region over the next couple of months, we hope we can inspire you through these months of rather cold winter weather.

In this edition we delve into the world of author Stephen Booth to find out more about his latest novel Dead In The Dark and the secrets to writing crime fiction. We meet ceramicist Linda Southwell, who's work has featured on BBC's The Great Pottery Throw Down, talking about her latest designs. We chat (and definitely taste-test) chocolate with Bob, Jenny and Meghan, the family behind the delightfully delicious offerings at The Chocolate Kitchen.
We’ve also got many of the area’s events covered in our Events section, which is compiled in conjunction with our partners at In North Notts.
