Hillsborough Christmas Market – Opportunity for artists/makers
18 November 2021Deadline: November 30, 2021
Hillsborough Christmas Market has an opportunity for four to six artists/makers to be featured in a ‘Meet the Makers’ section of the Hillsborough Christmas Market on 10 & 11 December 2021.
This dedicated ‘feature’ area of the market will showcase makers and their work in an interactive way. This interaction could take the form of demonstration-based chats with the public and/or short hands-on ‘have a go’ features, where relevant and practical.
Each maker will also have the opportunity to sell their work.
The market is outdoors, however makers will be in a covered area. Lighting and power will be provided and tables are available on request.
A demonstration fee of £100 for each day will be paid to each participating artist/maker.
This is a lovely opportunity to make connections with new audiences and customers. The last Hillsborough Christmas Market in 2019 had over 8000 visitors (a one day event then held on a Friday evening). Recent Hillsborough Farmers’ Markets have had around 4000 attending.
Friday 10 December, 3pm-9pm
