Virtual Market

We have gathered together all of our talented makers and creators from this year’s Make & Mend Festival to produce a very shoppable virtual marketplace, linking to their social media channels and websites.

The market could help you discover a new artist/maker, inspire some thoughtful gifting ideas or just a lovely opportunity to shop for yourself whilst supporting some independents and freelancers folx.

On Sunday 19th September, across the day on our social media channels, we will be showcasing some of the talented folx in our virtual marketplace, so keep an eye out! ##MMFest21
