New independent designer-makers arts market for Birmingham City Centre

After successfully running markets for local artists, illustrators, photographers, designer-makers, crafters and the like — in the not-exactly-conducive-to-passing-trade environs of the Custard Factory — Handmade have been working with Marketing Birmingham and Retail Birmingham towards launching a new weekly Handmade Arts & Craft Market for the City Centre.

The new Handmade Market will be at the Bull Ring Markets, along Edgbaston Street, from St Martin’s down to Debenhams, every Saturday and Sunday. First markets on the 28th and 29th August — local crafty types are encouraged to sign up for a stall now.
