Artists & Makers Market 7-9pm Friday December 4th online

We’re having an online maker’s market #hebdenmakeschristmas on Friday 4th December 7-9pm.

Instagram will be buzzing with virtual stalls from a plethora of ridiculously talented Calderdale artists and craftspeople.

Simply follow the hashtag #hebdenmakeschristmas and search the feed between 7-9pm on Friday 4th December to see the work for sale and to find out how to buy it.

We have over 40 different artists and makers signed up already, including Julia Ogden, fresh from her appearance on TVs ‘home is where the art is’, renowned local jewellers Kate Rhodes and Toby Cotterill, wildlife sculptor John Noble-Milner, landscape painter Kate Boyce, willow sculptor Joe Gregory, textile artists Kath Baker and Elaine Hook, shelf portrait painter Roo Waterhouse and many more.

We know our art and crafts stand comparison with the best; take a look and judge for yourself - then buy if you can and share whatever you like!

There are beautiful, original paintings and prints, sculpture, jewellery, ceramics and textiles, as well as limited edition prints, greetings cards and things like tea towels, mugs and key rings.

There will be gifts for all budgets and tastes.

See a sneak preview on Facebook at #hebdenmakeschristmas Hebden Bridge Artists & Makers Christmas Market over the next few days.

We’re all here still, in lockdown, doing what we do best and also spreading some love and happiness.

Christmas Art Chain

Live on Facebook 7pm Thursday December 3rd

Hebden Bridge artists and makers have added a new twist to the online art markets and craft fairs that are, not surprisingly, very popular this year.

Following on from the success of our live discussions during the Open Studios Online event in October we’re doing a live ‘Art Chain’ - a sort of ongoing online show and tell - at 7pm on Thursday 3rd December.

One artist asks another about their work, and as the first leaves the discussion the next joins.

Interviewee becomes interviewer to bring you a fascinating evening of constantly changing art and crafts.

Join the event on the Hebden Bridge Open Studios Facebook page.

Local artists and makers participating are: Kate Lycett, Julia Ogden, Roo Waterhouse, Toby Cotterill, Fiona Armer, John Noble-Milner, Dorothy Simister, Kath Baker, Hannah Nunn and Bill Kitchener.
