I’ve been working on the concept of Go! Craft for a while – I wanted to find an outlet for my crafts that was in the centre of Brighton where people couldn’t miss! I felt as though being tucked away in a church hall on a back road meant that the interest in the craft community was beginning to dip as no one knew we were there. As art and craft are such an important part of Brighton I felt that something had to be done! I started up Go! Craft, an arts and crafts market in Brighton showcasing local talent.
I’ve been inspired by markets like The Fairytale Fair and Maker’s Boutique to create my own outlet. Four times a year I’ll be holding Go! Craft market in the centre of Brighton and showcasing some of the makers and artists that make Brighton so brilliant.
The last one was held at the end of May, which coincided with both Brighton Fringe and the Festival. It was a brilliant day and everything looked gorgeous. There was plenty of footfall and a really chilled out party atmosphere which meant that the customers stayed for a lot longer than they otherwise would have done.
