Meet the Burton Makers
November sees the return of Meet the Makers to the Burton. Part of the Burton’s events programme last year, Meet the Makers proved extremely popular with our audiences; young and old, visitor and local alike, attracting over 250 people. This year, starting from Saturday November 2nd and then every Saturday until, and including, the 14th December, an artist from the Burton’s Craft Gallery will be on site sharing the secrets of their craft. Meet the Makers is something different, it’s a great opportunity for the artists to meet the public and for the public to question the artists and learn more about their favourite contemporary crafts and purchase a unique gift for a loved one. Artists include: Merlyn Chesterman (2nd November), Helyne Jennings, (9th November), Rachel Sumner (16th November), Ed Wilde (23rd November), Karen Adams, (30th November), Clive Bowen, (7th December) and Isabella Whitworth, (14th December)
