Deck the hall! Made in Bristol’s amazing Gift Fairs return to our glorious foyer presenting three bumper weekends packed full of local talent, unique creations and entertainment galore.
Made in Bristol’s seasonal showcases celebrate talented local makers, including ceramicists, jewellers, woodcarvers and printmakers, as well giving you the chance to get ahead with your festive shopping. The Gift Fairs also provide a great opportunity to understand the creative process, to shop local and to find truly individual, handmade gifts.
See below for dates and more details.
Made in Bristol run arts and crafts events, exhibitions and pop-up shops in venues across Bristol to celebrate, showcase and promote the region’s unrivalled artistic talent.
On Saturday 23 November & Sunday 24 November, alongside the many makers selling their handmade gifts, Made in Bristol have teamed up with Let’s Make Art to offer a special creative family programme. These festive workshops will feature their signature costume/wearable artwork and other dazzling drop in activities.
Karen and Alice bring a playful and stylish approach to their events. They take great care in devising unique workshops that aim high and help children realise their artistic potential. Their projects are cheeky, flamboyant and have their own particular style, which appeals to both children and adults.
Let’s Make Art and Made in Bristol believe creativity strengthens all aspects of learning for all ages. These workshops and activities will introduce concepts of colour, texture and composition and, as well as developing fine motor and problem-solving skills, your children will have fun with a wide variety of art materials, proudly taking home seasonal masterpieces. Details to follow soon about how to book.
On Saturday 30 November & Sunday 1 December their festive edition will feature a roof raising accompaniment of song, as local choirs join in with artists and performers across the world to celebrate Fair Saturday: a day devoted to culture and charities and the power of both to build a fairer world.
And once again when Made in Bristol return for a final Gift Fair instalment on Saturday 7 December & Sunday 8 December, they will also be hosting a special business weekender to mark Small Business Saturday alongside a cornucopia of beautiful handmade wares.
