A record breaker all round!
That was the verdict of the team of creative Design Platform members following the success of their Artisan Market on Saturday.
Held at the Old Station and Heritage Centre, in Longridge, they report more people than ever came through the doors to peruse hand-crafted and innovative new products from members of the Artisan Collective, who were joined this time by guest artist Natalie Spencer.
Lindsay Philips, of Precious Violet Jewellery, ran two creative workshops for jewellery enthusiasts on the day, when those taking parts discovered how to make their own unique ‘Gossiping Goddess’ bracelets. One of these was their youngest every workshopper to date – a talented young lady called Grace.
Late in the day visitors were treated to an appearance of Heather Holden as the Black Swan from Swan Lake.
She was accompanied by some little ballerina cygnets who later busied themselves at the children’s Hallowe’en craft table.
The Design Platform crew was also delighted to report that their charity raffle raised a whopping £60 for Breast Cancer Campaign.
This cause was chosem by the group in recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness month.
