Alford Craft Market Celebrates 40 years at it’s Xmas Craft Market
Alford Craft Market is holding the second of its weekends of Craft Markets this year as part of its 40th anniversary year celebrations.
The long standing collective is run by volunteers, many of whom are also artisans, who pride themselves in understanding the need for quality and originality from all of the craftspeople who take part in their events and believe that this is what makes Alford Craft Market stand out from the rest. Their Christmas events attract many talented artists and craftspeople from around the county to come and offer their quality work for sale.
Buying ‘handmade’ is a great way to ensure that the gift you are giving won’t be replicated in every high street shop but will instead be something really rather special that reflects the care and thought that you have put into your gift giving.
At this market you will meet the people who make the goods they are selling, you will find them friendly, informative and always happy to help you in your quest to find that perfect something. Over the weekend-long event there wil be a wide range of arts and crafts represented from the traditional to the more contemporary.
There will be original jewellery from artists working in Silver & Gold, Glass, Polymer Clay, Papyrus, Gemstone and Fractal Art. Textile arts and wearable pieces from Silk-Batique artists, Contemporary Felt artists, Applique and Hat-makers. Painters, Ceramicists and Art Glass, Wood-turners, Traditional Toy-makers, Artisan foods , the list is long and varied. Each weekend will see a different selection of craftspeople attending.
The weekend event is held indoors!! Taking place in Alford’s recently refurbished Corn Exchange building in the main Market Place area. In addition to the crafts on sale the indoor event offers a small café area and musical entertainment along with wheelchair access and toilet facilities to make your shopping experience a pleasant one.
Why not make the change this year…buy handmade, buy quality, buy locally!
