Fisherton Mill in Salisbury is bringing some festive cheer to shoppers with a Maker’s Market which starts tomorrow (Saturday).

It features more than 30 small craft businesses for six December shopping days.

Each day a small but carefully curated outdoor Makers Market will feature seven vendors under a covered decorated pergola in the courtyard of the iconic Victorian grain mill. Safety protocols will be in place as well as access to the regular courtyard shops.

Deborah Fox, of Fisherton Mill, said: “Buying online may have its benefits but nothing beats the Christmas cheer that an outdoor shopping market can offer and we are fortunate enough to have fantastic contacts with local artists and craftsmen.”

Among the range of participants will be Silky Saluki Designs by local artist Amelia Burgess and named after her Saluki dog. She creates unique, hand drawn, watercolour and ink designs for a range of cards, tea towels and aprons. As well as Fiona Ingram, who is is a Dorset-based teacher and jewellery designer with a passion for metal clay. Her work in silver and bronze, inspired by the local landscape and symbolism of Eastern and tribal jewellery, will also be available.

Winged Hare sells hair accessories in a range of patterns and textures, often upcycling vintage and one-of-a-kind materials.

Among the artists exhibiting will be Hampshire based Annmarie Thomas who works mostly in acrylics, painting abstracts and semi-abstracts inspired by nature.

The Fisherton Mill Makers Market is scheduled for December 5, 12, 19, 17, 18 and 21, 10am to 5pm and run alongside the Gallery’s Seasonal Treasures and gift shop.
