featured@ fair trader

In 2021 we transformed our top room into a showcase space for local makers under the banner featured@ fair trader. 

A two/three-month rolling programme featuring a wide range of artists and makers gives customers an opportunity to enjoy and buy their work. You'll find a wealth of original items to suit everyone’s taste and pocket.

If you are interested in becoming one of our featured artists, please read our Terms of Residence and complete the application form.

Celebrated local artist Sue Jenkins works with clay and has been creating her characterful wildlife sculptures since 1974. Sarah Jones-Morris has been working on her individually-crafted ceramic vases and planters since completing her degree in 2001, while continuing to work as a school art technician. We also have the colourful creations of Slaithwaite-based illustrator and ceramist Gareth Gough, and gorgeous jewellery from Joanne Brown, who breathes new life into recycled tin for her unique pieces.
