Christmas Art Market at The Ropewalk
The highly anticipated Christmas Art Market takes place at Barton upon Humber’s The Ropewalk over the weekend of Saturday December 7 and Sunday December 8.
Held over two days for the second year running because of the popularity of the event, a total of 38 makers and artists have been selected to take part in the occasion.
“This year demand for spaces at the Market has been so over-whelming that we have had to limit the number of stalls,” said Liz Bennet of the Maltkiln Road arts centre.
Those taking part have been selected as they sell original handmade gifts, cards and artwork.
“Whatever the weather throws at us on the Art Market weekend it doesn’t matter,” said Liz. “All the makers will have their stalls undercover along the corridor running down the building.”
“On sale will be a host of ideas for Christmas gifts including jewellery, prints, paintings, handmade cards, ceramics and woodwork.”
The Art Market also coincides with the opening weekend of The Ropewalk’s annual Studio Artists’ Show and Christmas Show which gives further opportunities to purchase that extra special Christmas gift.
The Art Market runs from 10am until 4pm on both days and admission is free.
