Christmas Pop Up at Create98 Dec 1st

Over a dozen artists and crafters (most of whom are Create98 tutors) have been hard at work over the last few weeks, to produce a whole host of beautiful, handmade crafts for our pop up Christmas shop on Sunday Dec 1st. We can’t wait to see the stalls all set up! Come along for your chance to shop for unique, artisan Christmas gifts all under one roof at Create98. 

There will be a huge range on display, from paintings to macrame jewellery and clay pots! Not forgetting textiles, print work, photography and natural skincare products.

We will be providing mulled wine and festive nibbles to keep you going whilst you peruse the stalls and get into the Christmas spirit! We are open from 11am – 3.30pm, we hope you can make it!
