Located on Chapel Street, they will be selling hand crafted items, which have been made by the artists and people who attend their workshops at Islington Mill.

Their aim is to encourage people to consider the provenance of what they are buying and choose individual, well-made items over mass produced junk – especially in the run-up to Christmas, they focus on unique, thoughtfully made pieces.

Miss Gillford, the Director of Salford Makers says “Salford and Manchester as a whole has a really dynamic, creative art scene…with all of the local development happening, the artist community is just going to grow and grow. It is a really exciting time for Salford!”

Make sure to head down from Saturday the 10th of November, and you’ll get the opportunity to meet the makers, take a look at their products and artwork and get involved in the making!
