HOW TO ENTER THE MAKER’S MARKET

Our aim is to promote and celebrate local artists, crafters and designers through our Maker’s Market. We are seeking to establish a regularly held, curated Maker’s Market comprising goods made by local artists and designers or goods created from substantially recycled product. Additionally, we will accept limited quantities of Christmas wrapping, decorations or homewares where local artists have contributed their artistic endeavours to add value to otherwise ‘new’ products.

  • We will not accept second hand, or trash and treasure items. We ask for details from all applicants to ensure there is not excessive duplication and that we can promote your products as genuinely handmade.
  • Potential Stallholders who would like further advice and information on running a successful market stall or creative business are encouraged to make contact with us for further advice – we have a wealth of information to share.
  • The Maker’s Market will be held on Sunday 8th December from 11am – 5pm. Tables will be provided to sellers throughout the rooms of the homestead and within Beatrice Taylor Hall, and sellers must staff their table throughout the day. Shared or group tables are most welcome.
  • All forms of art and craft suitable for Christmas giving is encouraged. Examples are small artworks, unframed works, jewellery, ceramics, paper craft, Christmas cakes or puddings, textiles, knitted/crocheted items, candles, soaps or oils, table decorations, etc
  • Table bookings will be on a first come, first served basis, and HAS reserves the right to refuse applications based upon duplication of works to be sold.
