The ACRA Ashburton Artisan Market showcases the work of Victorian artisans. All products are made by the stall holders themselves. Products range from Christmas puddings, cakes, jams and chutneys to candles, jewellery, art work, cards, glass and laser cut Christmas ornaments, and much much more.
Come along and meet the artisans, watch demonstrations and take part in art classes, 'make and take' sessions and purchase something for yourself or your loved ones. When you are buying from an artisan, you are buying more than an object, you are buying hundreds of errors and experimentation. You are buying years of frustration and moments of pure joy. You are buying a piece of a heart, a piece of a soul, a piece of someone else's life! Buy local and support local.
Participating stallholders include Miss Cuddles Quilts, Chrisalis Fine Handmade Jewellery, Joyce's Fairy Dresses, Lavish Candles, Ziel Essence all-natural aromatherapy and skincare, Faberge Eggs, Sally McNally's Chutneys and preserves, Jussie Smith Art works, Gloogirl cards, Sapphire Ceramics, Grandma Smocking, Timberings, Flowstill Glass, Win Roc Soaps, Decoupage, Global Engravers, Country Womens' Association's cakes and plum puddings and delightful treats
The One Voice Choir will sing Christmas carols and Ashburton Traders and the Community Centre are providing a gift wrapping service with the proceeds going to a local charity.
In the words of Ian Turpie "Come on Down" to Ashburton and support local artisans and have a lot of fun.
