Etsy Makers Christmas Fair

Friday, 1st December 2017 until Sunday, 3rd December 2017

This Etsy Makers Christmas Fair, at The Guildhall, in St Ives, is part of the national Etsy Made Local weekend (Friday, 1st December until Sunday, 3rd December 2017): and following on from a fantastic fair last year (we had over 3000 visitors) we've got some brilliant things planned for this year.
It'll be a modern Christmas fair with a magical Narnia theme, taking place in the heart of St Ives, kicking off the same night as Father Christmas arrives by boat with a special, woodland cocktail party.
We were pleased to be awarded a generous bursary by Etsy to help with the cost of putting on the fair: so this has allowed us to keep the price of stands very low for makers, providing an inclusive event encouraging the wealth of talent we have in Cornwall. It's great for us to collaborate and share our skills, experience and ideas to put on the best show ever. We've also collaborated with other local organisations and businesses including: * providing a collection box for Food Bank, * local musicians will be performing * hosting a pop-up deli cafe from the Green Deli * Renowned Newquay bar Tom Thumb will be keeping us well-oiled with woodland-inspired cocktails on the opening night party.
From over 140 applications for stands, we whittled down the exhibitor list to 40 makers selling the very highest quality products for people wanting to buy modern, handmade, unique presents for Christmas. We've got some brilliant, award-winning companies exhibiting, including Katy Luxton Jewellery, Amy Cooper Ceramics, Helen Round Textiles and Lou Tonkin, print-maker. Shoppers will be able to see: * modern ceramicists * stylish home-wares * hand-printed textiles * unusual jewellery designers * experienced glass-makers * found sculptors.
We will be keeping our social media accounts updated with news and information about the event so yuo can follow is on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. We're aiming to keep this group going as a non-profit group to support local makers in Cornwall, and put on regular contemporary craft events in the future.
