On Saturday 12th December at The Wonder Inn in Manchester, the team at Carbooty present a Christmas pop-up event; showcasing local artistic talent and making work available for purchase, at affordable prices.
Carbooty is the work of artist and illustrator, Tasha Whittle and Helen and Elizabeth Wewiora (Wewiora Projects). Working in collaboration with local artists, Carbooty is a free event, combining visual art, crafts, live music and performance.
As a visitor, I've enjoyed every one of the Northern Art Carbooty's, which take place on the August Bank Holiday, at its resident spot on Primrose Street in the Northern Quarter. It's always a summer highlight and so I'm very pleased that this year, I'll be taking part in their pop-up, Christmas event.
As with any Carbooty event, the emphasis is on the affordable and as well as some Christmas bargains, I've also managed to get my hands on this pin badge maker; so there may even be the odd, little freebie for those who can make it down on the day.
