Over 90 talented artists and makers from across the South West gathered for one day in Barnstaple Pannier Market to showcase their wares at Devon Pop Ups Winter Artisan Market
The event featured an eclectic mix of exhibitors across a whole range of disciplines: from home-made sweets to doggie treats, from headdresses to statement jewellery, macramé, ceramics, wood, leather, fine art, prints, illustrations, embroidery, photography and food. The wonderful thing that they had in common is that they were all handmade by the artisans themselves.
We offered a FREE gift wrapping service for all purchases made on the day. Plus there was live music, drop-in workshops and super tasy food.
2000 visitors rocked up on the day to enjoy the event. We were so busy that he car parks were full and our food sellers ran out of food.
But everyone was happy and it was a great day with many, many handmade treasues taken home.
