Etsy Manchester is a diverse group of artists, crafters, curators and art suppliers who all sell on the e-commerce site www.etsy.com. Based in and around the greater Manchester area they are united by their location and love of handmade and vintage. They recently hit an amazing target with over 500 people joining their Etsy Manchester group. To celebrate they wanted to do something that showcased the incredibly talented people that they have in their group.
To do this we’ve teamed up with the group and on the 25th of October we have leant them our window, giving the members of the Manchester Etsy team the chance to display their work and talents in a one-day-only pop up window display. With two of their industrious creators working in the windows this will give passer-bys the chance to glimpse behind the scenes finding out how they manufacture their items. Alongside this the group will create a large scale piece of community art, making the window a hive of activity.
Etsy Manchester want to extend a warm welcome to all makers, collectors and artists and everyone in between to drop by and see them tomorrow. Come and talk to them about what you create, get some ideas for Christmas and see if you strike gold and win some unique home made gifts. After they close the group will be having an open after-party where you can continue to enjoy the creative atmosphere.
Tell Etsy Manchester you will be coming along here.
