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.

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.
