We have teamed up with the brilliant Bee Watson of Wild Hive Paper Flowers to bring you a contemporary craft pop-up shop and makerspace right in the middle of Exeter this Christmas.
We are very happy to be interrupting the high street with contemporary craft! The old Animal shop in Exeter’s Guildhall Shopping Centre will be transformed into a welcoming celebration of makers and making. Join a workshop, take a break from the crowds, make some Christmas gift wrap and shop from a carefully curated collection of gift ideas from our makers, from jewellery to hand printed textiles, ceramics, print, wood and more.
Bee Watson of Wild Hive handcrafts beautiful paper flowers and delivers workshops around the UK. She is organising some creative workshops over the 4 days. All are welcome to join the drop in creative activities every afternoon from 1.30pm, and in the mornings there will be bookable workshops taught by local businesses, including a Paper Foliage Workshop with Wild Hive, Wreath Making with Exeter florist Friday Flowers and Silver Christmas Decoration Making with jewellery designer / maker Corrinne Eira Evans. The shop’s shelves will be full of beautiful handmade gift ideas for Exeter’s shoppers, all handmade by some of the UK’s most prestigious makers, including Teresa Green, Jennifer Collier, Peter Lanyon, Adam Cornish, Helen Round, Abi Higgins, Marna Lunt and Rachel Butlin, to name a few. Come and join us!
