Makers Marque

Sunday 26th May 2019
12pm - 5pm, £2/£1 concession

 Makers Marque is more than just a market for local traders and designers. It is a chance for people to get involved, learn a new skill and see the processes that usually take place behind closed studio doors. The event is a mix of local craftspeople demonstrating their skills and selling their unique products, plus artist and makers workshops, demonstrations and repair stations. 
A number of Drill Hall based artists will also be taking part with OPEN STUDIOS during the event.

We’re also excited to welcome Darkbox Images to the Makers Marque with their Authentic Victorian Portrait Booth! A chance to have your very own tintype portrait taken and learn all about this fascinating process.
