Winter Arts Market moves to Liverpool Cathedral

Over 200 contemporary artists, designers and makers selling work at Liverpool Cathedral, on 3 December 2016

MERSEYSIDE'S largest arts and crafts market, the Winter Arts Market will return for an 8th year, on Saturday, 3 December 2016. Staged this year in the breathtaking surroundings of Grade 1 listed Liverpool Cathedral the market will see this awe inspiring space, 1 of the most beautiful in the City, transformed into a bustling independent shopping experience that's the perfect place to pick up unique Christmas gifts.

The Winter Arts Market will feature work from more than 200 of the region's best artists, designers and makers with everything you can imagine for sale, from paintings and jewellery to screen prints, Christmas decorations, cards, photography, homewares, glassware, textiles and handmade beauty products. There will also be a vintage fair downstairs in the Cathedral's Concert Room offering shoppers a range of vintage clothing, bags, jewellery and homewares along with a food fair offering everything from homemade jams and chutneys to handcrafted chocolates and unique blended teas.

Visitors will be able to take a break from shopping to enjoy delicious homemade food and drinks in the Cathedral's Welsford Café and KECS Creative's Super Silly Scientists will be on hand to keep little ones and the young at heart alike busy with a festive crafting workshop from 11am to 4pm.

The Winter Arts Market is organised by Liverpool social enterprise Open Culture, who have staged the event annually since 2009. The market aims to provide the public with a chance to purchase affordable, unique work directly from artists and makers; helping to support independent businesses in the creative economy and keeping money local.

Charlotte Corrie, Open Culture Director said:- "We've been astounded by the record number of applications we've had from brilliant designers and makers who want to be part of the Winter Arts Market this year. We can't wait to share their work with the public. The selection process has been really tough, but we're really excited to present work by some wonderful new artists alongside favourites from past events. We know our audiences really appreciate quality handmade work that is affordable and we're looking forward to inviting the public back to what will be an amazing shopping experience in an awesome building."

The Very Revd Dr Pete Wilcox, Dean of Liverpool said:- "December is the busiest month of the year in our diary, as we build towards the celebration of Christmas. In all that we do we aim to add that special touch to people's preparations for the Nativity, and this new partnership with the Winter Arts Market promises to do just that. We look forward to what will be a memorable event."
