Four days of handmade loveliness in the heart of Lancaster. So whether you are looking for that something extra special for a Christmas gift or wanting a cheeky treat for yourself we will have something for everyone. Here is some information about some of the featured artists.
Fine Lines Art is a small business based in Lancaster run by best friends, Jane & Myra. From their original artwork they produce calendars, prints, cards and coasters depicting the local area. In addition to their unique artwork they also create pictures from locally sourced sea glass and recycled glass.
Dizzy Lizzy Glass is the creation of local artist Diane Clarke. She loves the beauty of glass and uses her extensive knowledge to create quirky and unique pieces of fused glassware. Her range consists of jewellery for all ages, personalised squashed bottles, vases, bespoke panels, coasters and so much more. Born in Lancaster she is passionate about the city and incorporates Lancaster themes in some of her work.
Martasha Jewellery & Photo Gifts is based locally in Nether Kellet and is run by Jan Beal. Jan’s work evolved through illness over 10 years ago and is now know as a national brand. She creates quirky jewellery using various images and can also capture customers own photographs. In addition to her jewellery she also has a bespoke design to create story panels using fused glass, laser technology and personal photos. Passionate about capturing memories her forever frames have been produced and sent all over the world.
“Do me a flavour” is the brain child of Jenny Mitchell who makes all her fudge by hand in the traditional way. Once cooked to the desired temperature it is cooled before moulding on a marble slab. It’s a sweet melt in the mouth treat just like granny used to make. She has a great range of flavours including her best selling lemon meringue, coffee and peanut butter.
This is just a small selection of the artists attending in December as we have over eighteen joining us.
