Hello - welcome to Pick 'n' Mix Makers Markets. We've taken away the traditional barriers between arts and crafts and have created a market which is vibrant, original and features makers who are passionate about their work.

The final Line-up

Ready for the final line up of the wonderful makers you can meet at this summer's Pick 'n' Mix. 

We love Sasha's quirky and retro inspired toys all handmade in vintage fabrics and notions. Most of my children's pocket money is spent on them and so our home is filled with quite a few cheeky creatures and dolls peeking out here and there.

New to the mix this year is Celia Hart of Magic Cochin's Emporium. I'm biased towards her work as I adore hares, but I know you will love her work as her visual eye and printwork is exceptional.

Then there is Bobo Bun which is me. My inspiration is from the happy days of childhood, the bright colours of fairgrounds and the idyllic world of the post-war years all worked in vintage fabrics and yarn.

Cathy Daniels will also be joining us this year, bringing her stunning ceramics. Much of her work is inspired by textiles and quilting. 

Emma Mitchell is not only a talented jeweller, but draws wonderful quirky pen and ink pictures too to show her work to its best. Much of her work is inspired by the natural world, she also incorporates vintage pieces into her work.

Fiona of High Fibre will be bringing the softest and most vibrant yarns with her as well as beautiful pieces of her own work made from her hand dyed yarn.

Ruth Johnson who owns Glory Days in Norwich will also be at the market selling some of the makers work who she showcases in her shop. In addition Ruth will be bringing some of her wonderful handpainted furniture.

A last minute addition to the mix is Sue of Heart of Glass who will be selling her stained glass work. 

We've had some great press for this years market. We look forward to seeing you there on the day.
