WMG Xmas Market Press release
Sunday 6th of December. William Morris Gallery, Forest Road, Walthamstow. From 11am - 4pm. Free entry!
We're absolutely honoured to host this years Xmas Craft Guerrilla Market in the home of one of the founding fathers of the Arts & Crafts Movement! The Water House, William Morris birth place,houses one of the most comprehensive collections of works by the artist. Here's the perfect opportunity to visit this beautiful venue and support your local community! As a craft collective we feel very passionately about William Morris and his life work. We see our selves as modern day "Craftalites"!
We've chosen the cream of the crop and personally selected a few of our favourite designer makers from jewellers,fashion designers, ceramicists, perfumers, artists and loads more! We think we've got it sorted and found some delightful hand made items that will make any Christmas extra special. But it's not all about buying we're also providing a D.I.Y. craft corner so people can sit,make their own and learn a craft skill. A CHOIR will be performing in front of the gallery welcoming visitors as they come in to the gallery with festive tunes to get shoppers into the mood (yet to be confirmed). The CRAFT GUERRILLA TOMBOLA will also be making another outing! In aid of the William Morris gallery we will be raffling off lots of delectable hand made goodies kindly donated by our gorgeous designer makers. Apart from being super talented this lot is also very generous. At £1 a go you really can't lose!
SO here is our press release so you can help us get the word out! Please let everyone you know about this great event...not just a craft market but also you'll be helping out this fantastic local gallery in need of much support!
