Handmade in Brighton this Bank Holiday

Looking for something to do this Bank Holiday? There are lots of local craft and handmade events that our Brighton Etsy team members are involved in. Here are just a small selection of them:

Artists Open Houses:

We’ve created a map of Brighton Etsy Team member’s Artists Open Houses for May 2015. Make sure you pay these houses a visit to view our team members work and maybe even meet them in person! This weekend is your last chance to catch them! View our map here.

Art Trail, Brighton Open Market, Until May 24th.

This May, the community of artists in residence at the Open Market are launching with ‘Art Trail around The Open Market’ as part in Artist Open Houses. AOH is a city-wide initiative that allows the public a unique opportunity to peak behind the scenes and see local artists at work, either in their homes or at the workshops. Sunday May 24th is your last chance to see it!




Of course it is also the close of the Brighton Fringe festival – so there are lots and lots of activities, events, bands and art to see across the city. Here’s hoping for a sunny weekend!
