Our very first market!

Yesterday saw our inaugural Barn Market and what a day it turned out to be!

Even though there were sprinklings of rain it didn’t keep the community away as people poured in to peruse the craft wares on offer. Many people reported that the barn was a spectacular venue with the courtyard serving as a beautiful setting to sit and enjoy a cup of coffee and a bbq item - yum yum. There was an array of unique craft products available including jewellery, stationary, children’s items, fudge, bath products, dolls, pottery, felt goodies, home wares and even some junk from the tip upcycled to create amazing little critters. And to top it off there was often a tapping foot or two to be found in response to the background tunes from a selection of buskers.

Thank you to everyone from the community who came out to support The Barn Market. Make sure you mark the date for our next market in your diary – you never know what you’ll find.

Craft Workshops & Maker Demonstrations

We are pleased to announce that one of the highlights of our market will be workshops. At each market we are hoping to showcase a workshop where stallholders can share their craft with the public. The workshop will be brief and repeated several times throughout the day.

At our first market this Saturday Miriam Grice from Jasmine Rose will be presenting 2 workshops on paper marbling. Miriam will present at 11.30am and 1.00pm - we hope you can make it to one of these.

Things are gearing up for this weekends event and it even looks like the weather will play nice.

Continue to spread the word, and we can't wait to see you there.
