With the evolving nature of the COVID-19 situation, The May Coal Loader Artisans Market may be postponed or cancelled. However, we would still encourage stallholders to apply before the deadline as accepted stalls in this round will be offered a place at the next available market.
The Coal Loader Artisans Market is held four times a year and features around 100 makers.
It is held on the last Sunday in February, May, August, and November at the Coal Loader, Waverton.
This unique market offers people an opportunity to purchase original and creative handmade products directly from emerging and contemporary designers, artists and makers, while enjoying the atmosphere of the beautiful and historic site.
Stalls display and sell art, ceramics, sculpture, basketry, eco products, fashion, jewelry, accessories, wool creations, textiles, food, children's design and much more.
We are proudly single-use plastic free, please help us stay that way by bringing a keep cup, reusable water bottle, and cloth bags.
Held rain or shine, the venue offers a beautiful all-weather marketplace to showcase local creative talent, and it's a pretty fabulous day each time!
