November’s Crafty Crawl: celebrating local makers and crafters!

We invite local artists, printers, crafters and makers to take part in Crafty Crawl – a local trail round the streets of the South Bank area in York.

Sunday 15 November, 12 midday to 4pm.

With Covid-19, keeping the event safe for everyone this year (now in its 6th year) is a priority. We’ll be in touch with sellers taking part nearer the time, but already it’s clear you can’t invite people into your homes. You’ll need to have a suitable outdoor space to offer your wares; and of course Planet South Bank will need to make a judgment nearer the time depending on local lockdown restrictions.

That said, we hope you’ll be keen to take part!

For more information please contact Pie Waller at ainsliewaller@yahoo.co.uk or contact her on 07761 642160 to register your interest and let us know what you’ll be exhibiting.

Deadline for registering: 6pm, Saturday 7 November.

Assuming the event goes ahead, we’ll ask each maker afterwards for £5 to cover our printing and admin costs.

We’ll post a list of participating makers on this site and on our Facebook page. Keep checking back or sign up to our blog to receive updates automatically.
