CRAVEN Arts is holding it’s first 'makers fair' over the August Bank Holiday weekend.

The event is being held to celebrate the final days of the Skipton Now Festival - which has been running throughout August - and the opening of the Craven Arts House Community Hall in Otley Street.

Talented makers are coming from a wide area to sell their work and include several Craven Arts members and local creatives.

From the textural ceramics featuring beautiful driftwood handles of Alison Young to the pixel based art of Jamie Wharton, the makers fair will be showcasing textiles, portraiture, graphic design, fine art, children’s book illustration, jewellery, silversmithing, fused glass, prints and paper engineering.

Open on Saturday, August 26, and Sunday, August 27 from 11am until 4pm, Craven Arts House will also have artists' studios open to the public, free taster still life drawing workshops and exhibitions of work by artist Alfonsas Paulauskas.

Also on show will be the 'Yorkshire mural' created by year-six pupils from Skipton's Greatwood and Christ Church schools and Craven College students black and white photography project ‘Humans of Skipton.’ Craven Arts House now has a small shop and an honesty cafe located in the front of building and is open every week Wednesday to Saturday, from 11am to 4pm.
