Winter Worlds

Our annual selection of hand-crafted gifts has become famous through out the north of England. Each year we hand pick the best of contemporary craft from across the UK and offer a unique selection of gorgeous jewellery, textiles, ceramics, glass and small scale gift to delight the eye and the pocket. This year we will be focussing on gifts with a really wintery feel, from icy chandelier jewellery by Corrinne Evans, to cosy sheepskin accessories by Miss Foxglove. For a humorous touch why not try a sprout wreath by Wigan's Sew Sew Crafty, or cute printed stationery by Blackburn's Owl & Cat designs? All in all, over 100 artists will be taking part, many from Lancashire and the north of England, so don't miss out on this feast of new ideas for the festive season.
