Our sail loft will be full of Christmas cheer…

Come and join us for our annual gathering of local artisans, have a glass of fizz and find some original gift ideas for you and yours.

One of our very talented Sails and Canvas seamstresses, Angie Needham will be bringing along her own work – Gansy designs inspired by her love of all things fabric. We are also joined by Anthi Kay Ceramics, Naturally Beautiful Designs with their lavender filled relaxation masks and Lou Foa‘s beach inspired 3-D artwork (mussel shells shown below).

Upstairs at Sails and Canvas is the Sail Loft Studio with resident artist Caroline Hart, Wallpaper Boats showing her collection of map and marine navigation chart paintings. Joining Caroline is Tim Winfield with his recycled silver jewellery, Liese Webley Artist and Willow Patterson. Kath Hadden, whose work is inspired by the stunning coastline of Devon and Cornwall and the rugged landscape of Dartmoor (pictured right), is once again exhibiting with Caroline following their successful studio share during September’s Devon Open Studios week. 

If you can’t be with us in person then take a look at the artisan’s social media pages for inspired gift ideas…and maybe enjoy a glass of festive cheer while you do!
