The Artwalk Virtual Marketplace 25.11.20 - 31.12.20
Shop local and support creatives this Christmas. Virtual Marketplace launches on the last Artwalk Wakefield of 2020
WEDNESDAY 25 November 2020
The Artwalk Virtual Marketplace launch night: 17:00 – 21:00
Continues until Thursday 31 December 2020
The next Artwalk Wakefield is making it easy to shop small, local, and independent this festive season. Visit the Virtual Marketplace on the Artwalk website to discover and support some of the most talented artists and makers from Wakefield and beyond, all from the comfort of your home.
Wakefield’s bimonthly evening of art, performance, music, heritage and socialising, usually takes place across a variety of independent venues in Wakefield City Centre. This year Artwalk Wakefield has adapted the programme to be delivered virtually. Artwalk at Home (#ArtwalkAtHome if you’re following on social media) has continued to shine a spotlight on local artists, celebrating inspirational projects and giving local communities access to art and culture for free.
The Virtual Marketplace, launching on Artwalk night, Wednesday 25th November 17:00-21:00 is no exception. Artwalk Producer, Amy Lilley says:
"We wanted to support our wonderful community of artists and makers at a time when many of them would normally be selling their products at fairs and markets across the country in the run up to Christmas. We know our incredible Artwalk visitors are keen to support Wakefield’s creative community so it just made sense to bring everyone together virtually this festive season".
Thirty artists, makers and creative businesses have been handpicked to showcase and sell their work for the event. From jewellery and homewares to cards and paintings at a range of prices to suit any budget, Artwalk has you covered this Christmas.
Find all the artists and their work at artwalkwakefield.org.uk, as well as being promoted across Artwalk Wakefield and The Art House’s social media accounts from 17:00, 25 November until 31st December 2020
On each sellers’ page you'll find an introduction to the artists and their work, some examples of their products, and most importantly a link to their website or online shop where you can buy directly from them.
