This week in the Why Blog? series we are featuring the team at the Harley Gallery and their lovely blog where they showcase their designers and makers.
If you fancy a visit to their Christmas Arts market or even want to apply to exhibit with them they are accepting applications until 31st July or 7th August for Graduates. Having exhibited at the show last year I would encourage you to apply. It was a great experience. Here's a little bit of info about it....
The Annual Harley Christmas Market brings over 50 art, craft and food stalls to The Harley Gallery on the Welbeck Estate, Nottinghamshire. Taking place from 22-24 November 2013, the weekend is a great opportunity to shop, relax and explore. Bringing you the best in handmade products, from real ales to jewellery, it’s a great place to pick up unusual and great quality gifts. The art market shows artists and makers selected by the Harley Gallery.
This year, the art market will have a special preview day on 22 November, 2-7pm, for those wishing to beat the crowds and get first pick for their Christmas presents. On Saturday (10am-5pm) and Sunday (10am-4pm) the market will be accompanied by the Harley Open Studios and Welbeck Estate food producers.
The Harley Studios are located a short walk from the Gallery, within the walls of the Welbeck Estate’s Victorian Kitchen Garden. These secluded artists’ studios are only open to the public twice a year, and in November will swing open their doors to reveal beautiful craft products, intriguing processes and inspiring makers.
Ok, on to the blogging then. This is what the team at the Harley Gallery had to say....
