Hearth Arts Centre Winter Fair!
This event is always one of our very favourite weekends of the year as it gives the general public the chance to meet the Hearth’s resident artists in their studios and see a selection of the highest quality arts and crafts made in the north (such as this magnificent linocut ‘Hexham Market’ by Cathy Duncan). The artists are an integral part of The Hearth – and run to everything from watercolourists to printmakers, jewellers to ceramicists and textile artists – and their work is available to view and buy from their studios. Twice a year the artists host an Open Studio Weekend, with invited artists and makers chosen for the quality of their work. At the Winter Fair, the emphasis is on offering visitors the opportunity to do their Christmas shopping in a warm and convivial atmosphere, with invited stallholders also selling handmade soaps and cosmetics, upcycled fashions, local honeys, basketry work and more.
Winter Fair & Open Studios, Saturday 18 & Sunday 19 November, The Hearth Center, Main Road, Horsley, NE15 ONT, 10am-4pm. thehearth.co.uk
