Netty Reddish

Netty Reddish has opened a fantastic pop-up shop at Cromford Mills!

Stop by the mill for your chance to discover lovely, handcrafted gifts created by Netty and a selection of local makers.

Netty’s shop features a range of jewellery, woodworking, personalised gifts and more!

I started the business during the ‘lockdown’, as my own work was affected and I began printing face-masks and using the online store, Etsy.


Orders arrived from Holland, the USA, Belgium, Canada and the UK for Face-masks, Mugs, Buntings and T-shirts.

My aim is to build the business at Cromford Mill and I look forward to the challenge ahead.

With an exhibition area available to rent by groups and individuals on a weekly basis, all my Derbyshire grown fleece hand dyed in a wide range of colours, hand dyed yarn, woolly products; a workshop area with different classes every week; and finally an amazing gallery area full of Derbyshire makers and artists.
