Hand Made at Haworth

Happy New Year to all. Let's hope it is a prosperous New Year for all designer-makers.
We are looking forward to a hand made 2011 as we continue with our Arts Markets at Riddings Hall in Ilkley. We have added a new venue this year and have two new dates.
"Hand Made at Haworth" will be a smaller event at The Old School Room, Church Street, Haworth, where Charlotte Bronte taught. This venue is opposite the Bronte Parsonage and is on a cobbled lane leading to the Main street. It has a pay and display car park to the rear and is on one level.

The hall is quaintly old fashioned with wooden floors, a beamed ceiling and arched windows.  We are marketing this event to reflect the historical aspect of Haworth and if you want a virutal tour of the hall please visit Haworth-Village. 

So, our publicity may look a bit different but there will still be a great selection of designer-makers at "Hand Made at Haworth" including jewellery, ceramics, textiles, photography, art and gifts. We have many of our favourite traders and some new ones too.

There is still some availability at our 2011 events and "Hand Made at Haworth" will be on Saturday 30 April 2011 and Saturday 15 October 2011.
Our Arts Markets at Riddings Hall will be as follows:
Saturday 28 May, Saturday 22 October and Saturday 3 December 2011.
