Autumn at The Burton

Christmas at The Burton
We are counting down the days to Christmas with our very own special Advent Calendar.  Each festive numbered box will contain a piece/pieces of work from different Craft Artists represented at The Burton, which will be revealed every morning at 10.30am!  Some of the Artists have brought in work especially for our display so this may be your opportunity to purchase a unique piece. Join us each morning at 10.30am throughout December for the ‘reveal’ and get some ideas for that special, individual Christmas gift. Check out our Facebook and Twitter feed for photos and information.

Come and meet Hilary Paynter as part of our 'Meet the Makers' sessions on Saturday, December 13th while she demonstrates her skills and answer your questions. Then purchase that unique gift for loved ones in time for Christmas.
