Modern Makers Collective: Yattendon Winter Market


Modern Makers Collective returns for the Yattendon Winter Market: A Celebration of Modern Craft. This year’s market presents an exceptional group of 24 artists, designer-makers and craftspeople, carefully curated for their expertise and originality.

Each maker explores their craft from a unique perspective, from traditional techniques applied in fresh new ways, through to innovative ideas pushing boundaries. Since its launch in 2020 the market has drawn several thousand visitors, many from beyond the local area. It is now an established and incredibly popular annual event, proudly championing Modern Craft, and celebrating the pride in workmanship shared by all its makers.

With the festive season around the corner a trip to the Christmas-tree growing village of Yattendon on the 25th & 26th November is a must. The makers will be showcasing their hand-crafted work between 10am and 4pm; entrance is only £2. Discover everything from velvety smooth woodturning, flawless fine jewellery and sumptuous silk weaving, to exquisite ceramics, lustrous glass sculpture, and much, much more. Make a day of it by dining at one of the award-winning lunch spots in the village, or explore the surrounding beautiful countryside, and return home laden with handmade delights.

Modern Makers Collective is a group of skilled makers, designers, artists and craftspeople who come together to showcase our work, as well as run a programme of workshops. Our shared philosophy is rooted in creating objects and works of enduring beauty and function, often one-of-a-kind, and always underpinned by quality of craftsmanship. From ceramicists and painters to weavers and upholsterers, our members are passionate about their craft, and dedicated to bringing thoughtfully designed and beautifully made products into the world.
