Along with my pals Mr Sebastian Matthes and Mr Will Tramp I have co-organised The Marketplace - part of a Kopparberg Un-establishment Manchester event which is taking place on Saturday 13th October at 2022NQ, 20-22 Dale Street, Northern Quarter, Manchester, between 12 and 6pm.
The boys have done an incredible job organising a week long series of workshops, talks and events aimed at celebrating DIY culture and creativity - including a knit and crochet workshop from Stitches and Hos that I will most definitely be going along to! (http://www.stitchesandhos.co.uk/)
The Marketplace is your chance to see some of Manchester's top Vintage sellers, Makers and Vinyl Collectors all under one roof. Expect to see only the best but at affordable prices. Stallholders have been specifically selected for their attention to detail and top knotch products. I have organised the vintage and craft stalls whilst the boys took charge of the record fair - so theres something for both the ladies and gents!
Tim Burgess of the Charlatans will be having a stall at the Record Fair. As well as the eclectic array of stalls, there will be workshops from super talented Textile and Print Designer Lisa Stannard (http://www.lisastannard.com/) who has worked for the likes of Whitney Eve and Matthew Williamson; as well as Anna Lapenkueper who makes outstanding jewellery.
There will also be a pop up polaroid studio from the fabulous The Impossible Project! (http://www.the-impossible-project.com/)
This event is not to be missed, and best of all - its all free!!
