Christmas Event Thursday 14th December

We invite you to our annual Christmas Event on Thursday 14th December (5.30pm-7.30pm) where you are welcome to buy anything at 10% off, with festive nibbles and the chance to rub shoulders with the makers themselves.

We look forward to seeing you!

Our makers and artists have been busy all year (and possibly all their lives ) gathering inspiration and ideas for their unique works of contemporary art and crafts.

These demand great skill and expertise with raw materials in order to transform them into the pieces that you will see at MAKERS today.

Whilst this sounds obvious and we all take for granted that beautiful things are available to us, the personal stories and adventures are the prime source of any creative work.

A Makers Tale

A reflective moment by a casino becomes a cushion with a dreamy pattern.
A love of wool and nature becomes an exquisitely felted bird.
A passion for clay and tactile sculpture becomes a sparkling light.
A course of study and much dexterity forges silver into jewellery.
A close connection with The Potteries sparks a collage of retro patterned tableware.
A tiny drawing of a wild flower in a sketchbook becomes a large-scale screen print.
These are just the sparkling tip of the handmade iceberg, and winter fuel for your thoughts as you browse our shop of delights!

Happy Christmas and thank you to all the many artists and makers we are privileged to represent in the heart of the Christmas Steps Arts Quarter. Here's to a 2018 filled with independent shops, artists, makers and inspiration everywhere!

With our best wishes,

Sally, Sarah & Jo
