Artists showcase homemade crafts

AN ECLECTIC bunch of artists and designers championing the crafts and skills of yesteryear are preparing to take over The Apex.

March Hare, a collective of artists, designers and crafts people, is holding one day shop and gallery events at The Apex, Bury St Edmunds, on the first Saturday of each month.

March Hare was established in March 2010 by Esme Crick and Julia Masterman, both of Bury St Edmunds, to allow artists and designers to come together to sell their products.

Esme said: “We set up March Hare to offer an outlet for independent artists and designers, everyone involved is passionate about locally producing quality hand crafted goods.

“The one day shop and gallery will give people the chance to buy original hand crafted goods and meet the makers.”

A variety of different crafts people including woodturners, silversmiths, printers, painters, carpenters and glass artists will be selling their products at the event.

Designer Sarah Wollerton said: “I’m a big believer in hand made goods and these events gives us a chance to sell directly to the customer.

“People can come and speak to us about our work and order bespoke products.”

March Hare’s next event will be held at the Apex between 10am and 5pm on March 3.
