December 3 – 4

Hebden Bridge will come alive with the spirit of Christmas this 3 and 4 December as over 80 local artists stage the first ever “Hebden Makes Christmas” art, craft and open studios event.

Big Christmas Weekend

Art and craft fairs at the Town Hall, Methodist Church, Northlight Studios Winter Fair and dozens of artists opening their studios and workshops; it’s going to be an amazing weekend throughout the town and on through to Mytholmroyd with more open studios and Brier Hey Pottery there.

This will be what Christmas markets should be about: an eclectic mix of one-of-a-kind artisan makers and artists, contemporary as well as traditional craft skills, along with the mulled wine, mince pies and festive Christmas fare.

An opportunity to shop truly independently, to discover gifts that will last a lifetime and a rare chance to find unique pieces of art and craft that just aren’t available on the high street.

Our local artists are renowned for the quality of their work and we’re lucky to have such a wide variety of talent offering pieces ranging from jewellery, sculpture, glassware, ceramics and carpentry to landscape watercolours, oil paintings, illustrations, photography and much, much more.

You can pick up a map and guide from any of the artists when you visit, or from the Town Hall, the Post Office, any of Hebden’s galleries or from cafes, bars, shops and venues around town.
