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.

Variety is the spice of life!

Anna Cade 1

Anna Cade produces a wonderful variety of products, all inspired by a love of craft and contemporary illustration. 

Her work shows a keen eye for detail and ranges from handmade screenprints and paintings to children’s clothing and other textiles. We adore her paintings on wood pictured above. Beautiful!

Using illustration and print as a process of exploring colour, pattern and textures, she works with a variety of mediums such as paper, wood and fabric. All this combines to produce a very unique range of work.

These inspired creations are also either limited editions or one off runs. So get down early to this year’s Winter Arts Market to avoid missing out!
