The Christmas Designer Craft Show has been running at Stockport Art Gallery for a few years. Hosted in the ArtLink area, the craft show offers designer-maker products, from jewellery to cushions and cards to scarves; many gifts can be found!
This year I helped Bronwen, the Collections Access Officer for the gallery, to prepare the ArtLink space for the craft show. Jobs included painting, taking delivery of products, creating displays, labelling products, arranging the products, incorporating collection objects into the display… not forgetting decorating a huge christmas tree!
Here are some images from the craft show preparation to illustrate some of the work involved in transforming the space from an exhibitions area to a Christmassy treat!
