Alford Craft Market December 2017 Events
The first combined Market run by the Craft Market and the Town on the 1st of December was intended as a trial run for future years, but nevertheless was a great success. Timed to coincide with the Manor House Christmas Extravaganza, it brought a crowd down to the Market Place where there were stalls selling food, cakes, jewellery , crafts, meat, and Christmas themed goodies. Alford Craft Market stalls filled the Corn Exchange, the Earthbound Misfits sent the Ice Queen and Jack Frost to entertain the visitors, and the primary school children sang carols around the tree. Most of the shops stayed open, and the whole town became a place to have pre-Christmas fun.
So pleased are the organisers that the planning for next year’s event will start in the Summer of 2018.
The Saturday and Sunday Craft Market was well attended and stallholders reported good sales over the weekend. The Craft Market shop will remain open until the Saturday before Christmas, and will then close for three weeks for refurbishment.
We have an Artist of the Month at our Alford Craft Market Shop, which is run entirely by volunteer craftsmen and women.
Alford Craft Market Centre has published its latest brochure of craft Classes (pdf download) for the 2017. There is a variety of classes and workshops on offer which include pottery and glass classes in its new Big Lottery funded studio at the rear of the Alford Craft Market Shop.
There are morning and afternoon classes, full day workshops, and 4 and 6 week courses for adults. There are also some Saturday morning and afternoon classes for children which will be held every month.
Anybody interested in the craft classes can get more information on the website or they can call in at the Alford Craft Market Shop, 1 West Street, Alford for a brochure.
