NEW FOR 2020 - Makers Fair Pop Up!
Thurs - Sun from 22 October – 20 December
at 1 Myrtle Place, Saltaire, BD18 4NB (formerly old bookshop + Edward St Bakery)
Opening times: Thursday - Sunday, 11am-3pm
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, we’ll be announcing news of a second Virtual Makers Fair to run alongside the pop up - in partnership with ShopAppy - very soon.
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.
WATCH our short film to find out more about the Makers Fair and hear what the makers think:
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.
