We have such talented makers in Lancashire, but we need more opportunities to bring our work to a wider audience.
It began back in November 2015 when I organised a studio group (myself and my neighbouring studios with a few guest artists) 3-day exhibition at Barton Grange Garden Centre in Lancashire. In 2016 this evolved into the ‘Handmade in Lancashire’ Art and Craft event, with 9 of us – a few of the studios from ‘Creative Roots Studios’, some members from ‘The Art and Craft Guild of Lancashire, plus guest artists – taking part in 2 small pop-up events at the garden centre. Sadly we were unable to continue holding events at Barton Grange, hopefully in the future we will be able to hold another event at a different venue.
“what would be an ideal space for a small group of artists and makers to host their pop-up event / exhibition? somewhere our local customers can come and visit us”
- we are Lancashire artists, designer-makers and crafters
- our work is handmade in Lancashire by ourselves
- high quality and standard of our work
- great selection of a variety of arts and crafts
- nicely displayed
- good price range of work on display
- we enjoy meeting and chatting to customers about our art / craft
- more info about each of us
Come along, meet us and help support us by buying local from Lancashire Artists and Makers!
