Space4Autism are holding a Christmas Market on Sunday 26th November
Crafts, candles, cakes, plants and lots more ideas for your Christmas gifts.
Space4Autism was set up in 2005, by a group of parents, to provide much needed support for families struggling to cope with the lack of professional services. From a meeting of parents once a month and now with a membership of over 600 families, they have moved into much bigger premises on Mill Lane in Macclesfield. The new premises will house the 300+ activities each year they now provide and it is planning to incorporate an Autism friendly cafe, a retail area and a huge sensory room.
The Foxlowe Arts Centre, Leek, will be hosting the sixth annual Staffordshire Contemporary Artists & Designers Fair on Saturday 2nd & Sunday 3rd December from 10am until 4pm. Entry is free.
The popular two day event hosts a wide variety of inspirational creative work by professional artists, designers and makers alongside Foundation Degree students from Leek School of Art, part of Buxton and Leek College.
The fair will showcase painting, printmaking, ceramics, glass, jewellery, woodwork and more from around the region.
More than 20 professional artist will attend the event. Artists include Helen Hallows who is a participant in the current series of Sky Arts Landscape Artist of the Year 2017 and creates wonderful original mixed media artwork inspired by nature and landscape. Also at the event are recent graduates of Leek School of Art Sarah Taylor , Val Leeming & Cathey Yardley who have recently opened the fantastic Gallery Twenty (a collective of nine Staffordshire Moorlands artists, designers and makers) in Getliffes Yard, Leek with their ceramics, textiles and glass work.
Suzanne Mellor, event organisor said: “Both artists and visitors are bound to have a fantastic time at this year’s fair. It will be a wonderful opportunity for shoppers to find beautiful things for themselves and their homes as well as being the perfect place to get started on some Christmas shopping. It’s a key date for anyone interested in discovering individual and unique artworks!”
The event is in conjunction with the Foxlowe Arts Centre situated in the centre of Leek which has a welcoming café serving home-made food and cakes. You can even order a glass of wine as you relax and admire your purchases!
