In case you missed it…

…we have our dates for this year’s Winter Arts Market.

So are you ready with a pen and your shiny new diary?

It’ll happen all over again on Sat 7 & Sun 8 December 2013.

You can expect more of the magic, beautiful crafts, christmassy feeling, food and festivities as last year, and perhaps maybe more…

See our pics below to whet your appetite!

See you next time!

Phew! What a weekend!

We thought you might like to see some snaps from the Winter Arts Market – there are lots more to follow, but in the meantime we’d just like to say a big thank you to:

– the very talented artists, designers and makers who exhibited and sold their work

– the thousands of people that came along to enjoy and support creatives from across the region.

– the brilliant people behind the scenes who make St George’s Hall a truly magnificent venue

– the impressive mix of performing artists who moved and delighted audiences in the Crown Court Room programmed by the marvelous Mellowtone

– KECS Creative for the children’s magical antler workshop

– the roaming historical characters of Lormac Productions

– our tremendous helper Anna Cahill!

–  and all of our very supportive colleagues, friends and families.

Join us next year for the Winter Arts Market – 7 & 8 December 2013.

Jigger And Jolly and a whole lotta Holly…

Christopher Turell-Watts (aka Jigger and Jolly) is a local artist who makes one off and small run batch ceramic sculptures, musical clouds and intricate lace inspired terracotta tea light holders.

We love these little guys:

Alongside these creations he is launching “Willow Pattern City” – a new series of plates and mugs with Liverpool buildings and landmarks in place of the traditional Willow Pattern you see on china.

You can see what other creations he’s cooking up on his blog at http://www.jiggerandjolly.blogspot.co.uk/ and don’t forget you can see his work in person on both days of the Winter Arts Market this year which is at Liverpool St George’s Hall (opposite Lime Street train station) on Sat 8 and Sun 9th December.
