November 2016 pop-up event

A selection of photos from our Handmade in Lancashire pop-up at Barton Grange Garden Centre at the beginning of November 2016.
We brought our arts and crafts out to the public and even though many of the visitors were there for a day out – visiting the bedazzling Christmas decorations and lunch – some of them discovered us and appreciated seeing our work.

We received some lovely feedback and compliments for our handmade art, craft and displays, even better some of our work went off to new homes with visitors buying a handmade gift either for themselves or for Christmas presents.

We still managed to have some visitors to our pop-up event despite some problems; what with the roadworks on the main route and getting stuck in traffic jams on the motorway which added to our journey time getting there and back. Plus, some people weren’t able to come and visit us with the pop-up event being on during school half-term and midweek.

A bonus for us doing the event though, was that we were able to chat to visitors about what we make – share a bit of our passion for what we do – and have a catch up with each other too.

There was a lot of work organising it, but I’m really proud that we were able to hold a great showcase with some beautiful displays of our locally made art and craft. Hopefully, we’ll have another opportunity to do it again next year, Samantha, jewellery artist x

Note: I only brought my camera in one of the days, so didn’t manage to take photos of everyone’s work and the artists joining us on the last day.
