The Winter Arts Market has become a staple event in the Merseyside arts calendar, and 2013 sees the fifth installment of this special event. As a festive celebration of arts and crafts, the event is a creative showcase of the region’s most imaginative and skilled artists and designer-makers.
Taking place in the lead up to Christmas Open Culture organise the event with Liverpool City Council to provide shoppers with an alternative to the high street, and provide support and opportunities to artists, designers and makers to exhibit, sell, promote, network and sell their work and services directly to the public.
