It can get cold this time of year in the workshops and studios around the Jewellery Quarter but that does not mean we shut up shop and take the winter off! Many of the makers and designers are off to fairs and shows around the country selling their wares and meeting customers and suppliers. As usual we are dotted around the UK but this year on 9th and December many of us will be right back here in Birmingham as we run our first ever Winter Open Studios.
Expect jewellery, leather, textiles and homewares alongside the usual mix of on street jewellery retailers.As it is the festive season there will be many a gift idea including a full list of workshops for you to take part in in 2018.
We will be blogging again this week bringing you the names in the frames!
Save the date and don’t forget that on Sundays throughout December parking in the multi-storey car park is free.
