IMPORTANT NOTICE - MAKERS FAIR POP UP NOW CLOSED
The first two weeks of our Makers Fair Pop Up were a great success, but following the government's recent announcement, we have now had to close for the coming weeks. A huge thank you to everyone who visited the shop and to the exhibiting artists and Saltaire Inspired team members who helped to make this such a success.
at 1 Myrtle Place, Saltaire, BD18 4NB (formerly old bookshop + Edward St Bakery)
Following a successful Virtual Makers Fair in May, Saltaire Inspired now presents Saltaire Makers Fair Pop-Up, a 9-week temporary gallery where audiences can browse and buy from a rotating selection of their favourite Saltaire Makers Fair artists, in a safe and relaxed environment.
The Pop-Up is a response to the challenges facing artists and makers due to the Covid-19 pandemic and replaces the twice-annual Makers Fair events that Saltaire Inspired host at Victoria Hall, Saltaire, during the Saltaire Arts Trail in May and Saltaire Festival in September.
For those not able to visit us in person, a Virtual Makers Fair will run alongside the pop up - in partnership with ShopAppy - from 31 October. More details coming soon!
Please note that the Pop Up shop is not fully accessible. If you have special access needs and would like to see the work on display in person, please email email@example.com to arrange a private view.
The Saltaire Makers Fair promotes the best independent artists, makers and designers from across the UK, displaying and selling their contemporary and original creations. Showcasing new designs in ceramics, jewellery, glass, silver, metal, books, paper, leather, wood, plastics, furniture, textiles, accessories, printmaking and photography, there is sure to be something to delight and appeal to every taste.

The Makers Fairs are held in May, as part of Saltaire Arts Trail and in September as part of Saltaire Festival. In May the Fair is the craft and design highlight of the Saltaire Arts Trail and in September it forms the major visual arts element of the Festival.
All makers are welcomed from contemporary artists to designer-makers working in ceramics, jewellery, glass, silver, metal, books, paper, leather, wood, plastics, furniture, fashion textiles and accessories, interior textiles printmaking and photography.
