Come and join us at the National Centre for Craft and Design as we celebrate the festive period!
By: The National Centre for Craft and Design
Approximately 3,000 people visited gifted in 2012, and gifted.13 is set to be bigger. Up to 50 craft and specialist food stalls and a programme of practical demonstrations, workshops and live music will complement the event. This year's market will also provide a dedicated area to newcomers - recent graduates and students.
It's a really fantastic, festive day stuffed with Christmas spirit, a blend of shopping, seasonal food, music, entertainment and creative activities. For exciting Christmas shopping, head for the marquee. Browse a fabulous range of contemporary craft stalls for that unique and perfect gift made by local and national designer-makers. Create a special hamper with delicious delights and local produce. Keep your strength up at the eateries in Navigation Yard. Soak up the live music and entertainment from Bella Diva, Lizzie Goddard, local school choirs and many more.
The whole of the NCCD will be open, including all five galleries with current exhibitions, and our gorgeous shop and café. You can even play Wii Winter Sports in our Main Gallery. It's a chance to learn things too! Phiona Richards' hand crafted paper decorations and our Christmas Craft Trail will keep you and the kids busy or you could knit your own Christmas stockings with the Framework Knitters' Museum. There'll also be a full programme of Design Factory Demonstrations too, so you've a chance to meet the artists and makers and learn how they make their wares.
