Born and Bred was founded in 2014 by Linzi Rooney (an artist herself) to help artists thrive. Our day-to-day work involves mentoring makers, welcoming people into our studio and selling beautiful, locally-made gifts in our shop.
Our studio and shop is open to the public and creates an opportunity for artists, locals, tourists, kids (and dogs), to get together and support independent businesses.
Whether you’re an artist unsure of your next steps, a maker looking for studio space, or a gift-searcher looking for something special — we’d love to hear from you.
There will always be a place here for you at Born & Bred, and we’re constantly on the lookout for people to join our family.
Clothing, gifts, art - we have it all. Best of all, all our products are created by local makers and celebrate Belfast, Northern Ireland and beyond. We truly have something for everyone.
