Bicester arts and crafts market takes place on Saturday 18 May from 9am to 5pm in Sheep Street.
It’s a new initiative from Cherwell District Council and features items from local artists and designers. All work on display will be handmade, original, affordable and high quality.
Joining Bicester based jeweller Kirstie Black will be other Oxfordshire artists such as woodworker Jamie Carr, ceramicist Lucienne de Mauny and wire bicycle maker Gary Curran. Visiting artists include wildlife photographer Des Ong, painter Ken Hurd, print maker Jan Bowman and the traditional art of decoupage updated by Jo Verity.
Cherwell’s deputy leader, Cllr George Reynolds, said: “This initiative is the result of a desire to highlight the skill and creativity of local craftspeople and give them an opportunity to sell affordable items to the public. All of their work is of high quality and it’s an ideal opportunity to buy unique gifts and decorations.”
Bicester Market is a partnership project between Cherwell District Council, Oxford Arts Partnership and Boffy Arts Markets. For details contact Becky at
