Newcastle University Business School held their first Christmas fair in the foyer showcasing a selection of talented local makers and producers that had participated in the Captured and Creative Fuse North East programmes.
9 local businesses set up their stalls in the foyer and delighted our senses with delicious artisan bread, handmade chocolate, cakes, artwork, knitwear and gifts.
The event was well received by all and we would love to host more, similar events in the future.
The businesses involved this time were:
Graphic designer David McLure of Velcrobelly
Contemporary embroidery artist Melanie Kyles
Gift wares from Corinne Lewis-Ward of Powder Butterfly and Kirsty McDine of Women’s Trading Collective enterprise B-Collective
Baked goods and workshops from the Artisan Baking Community
Chocolatier Wajeeha Hussein of Chocolateeha
Luxury knitwear designer Ellie O’Neill of Study 34
and provider of mobile coffee and cakes, Helen Trowbridge of Van-illa Treats
We would like to thank all of the traders for providing helping us to provide such a fantastic event and look forward to running further events like this in the future.
