Macclesfield Treacle Market

April 29, 2019

Yesterday I met up with a few of my old school friends and we went to the Macclesfield Treacle Market.

What a wonderful treat for anyone interested in Crafts, design, art and amazing food. I chatted to quite a few of the stall holders who were very chatty and excited to be apart of this busy designer market. Artist Andrea Joseph creates wonderful portraits of whoever happens to want one.

Manchester based Illustrator Dick Vincent, has a wonderfully dry outlook on the world around him. I really like my new Hockney badge and card I got from his stall.

Stunning woven goods from Suzanne Horwell who helps to run a working farm in the Peak District and a company called The Royal Edge, making beautifull wool and wire products from her own sheeps fleeces.

There was a great (but a little meloncholic) range of dog prints and cards by artist Lauren Van Helmond, who also sells antiques and woven blankets.

Some crazy guitars made from Cigar boxes alongside antique and modern design stalls too.

I also couldn’t resist this wooden Rabbit from Chorlton based designer Bear Print Design.

Town Criers and a local Choir, something for everyone. Thanks to my school pals for a grand day out too !

Next weekend I’m taking part in the Green Walk Open House event in Whalley Range, Manchester.

It’s a beautiful setting in a cul-de-sac of very artistic houses which open their doors to the public and show approximately 60 different designer-makers work over two days, which this year is May 4th and 5th (Sat and Sun) open from 12 noon until 6pm both days.

I’ll be in House no 3, Green Walk, off Wood Road, Whalley Range, Manchester, M169RE. With a range of my ceramics and illustrations. There will be food from Tibetan Kitchen and music on the green itself, so do put the date in your diary and pop by to say hello.
