Mon - Amie The Makers Market

Mon - Amie The Makers Market

Sat, 05 May 2018 10:00

In 2018 Mon Amie is bringing our first Makers' Market to Kibworth Grammar School Hall.

Created to showcase true creatives, creators and makers of their product, the Makers' Market will bring together a contemporary collection of stalls from across the region and beyond.

This is not a craft fair - the Makers' Market is concentrating on a beautifully curated selection of stalls that elevates the status of craft into something that celebrates good design, quality and skill.

Alongside the stalls, workshops and demonstations will be run by some of the stallholders and artisans to share their passion for what they do and provide creative inspiration for our audience. We will publish a list of what's happening at what time closer to the event.

Of course there will be food and drink too - with our amazing Pop-Up Café run by Margarita's Tasty Kitchen.

Our event is on:

Saturday May 5th 2018.

10 am - 4pm.

£2.50 per adult entrance

Venue:
Kibworth Grammar School
