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.

List of households taking part in tomorrow’s Street-Re-Cycle!

There is still time to add your address to participate in this local, community event.

Send your house number and street name to mailto:info@planetsouthbank to get your household listed and pick up a poster, leaflets and balloons from Pie at 3 Scott Street – between 6 and 8pm this Saturday evening.

Spend Saturday clearing out your cupboards, attic and shed – sort out your stuff – you can sell it, swap it or give it away. Items can include books, clothes, dvds, cds, jewellery, small items of furniture, toys, left over bits of carpet, crockery and other bits and pieces that other people will want to acquire and cherish (and you will have space in your cupboards and on your shelves for lovely new things!)

Put all your stuff at the front of your house (or at the back of your property in the alleyway and wait for people to come and delight in some new treasures. Have a great fun day meeting neighbours, making new contacts and getting rid of, or acquiring, new things. Please make sure that you clear up at the end of the day and observe social distancing and other safety measures.
