Successful Christmas Art Market at The Ropewalk
The Ropewalk’s second two-day Christmas Art Market attracted the crowds to the Barton upon Humber arts centre.
“We were delighted to welcome so many people to our annual opportunity to purchase Christmas gifts from regional artists and craft-makers,” said Liz Bennet of The Ropewalk.
“It was a pleasure to see the building so full of shoppers taking the opportunity to make the most of this chance to buy special Christmas gifts from those taking part who lined the corridors of The Ropewalk.”
“What was so especially pleasing that some of our regular customers from South Ferriby who had been badly affected by the flooding managed to hitch a lift in with neighbours to pay us a visit.”
In total more than 800 people visited the Maltkiln Road venue over the two days and it was not just the Art Market that was busy.
Laura McNair, the Craft Gallery and Exhibition Co-ordinator, said there was a real buzz in the Craft Gallery at the weekend.
“It was wonderful to see the Gallery so full of customers appreciating all the great work we have on display,” she said while in the Coffee Shop, manager Amanda Foster reported a never-ending stream of customers.
“Over the weekend we got through 152 pints of milk, it was amazing,” she said.
