So Long, Fore Street

It is with a heavy heart that we announce the end of an era. MakeArt will be leaving Fore Street on the 6th September.

We are Still Here!

MakeArt will continue to trade online on this very website.

MakeArt will be represented at as many craft events in the South West as we can manage. Keep an eye on this blog for dates and please come and say hello!

Don’t Forget Your Stuff

If you have pottery to collect, your last chance is Saturday 6th September 2014. Anything left behind after that will be found a charitable home.

We’re Going to Miss You, Please Stay in Touch

We know how much MakeArt means to some of you, and we’re so sorry to have to go. If our services can be of use to any of you on a more private basis please do let us know. Sign up to our mailing list to get future updates, and follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest to see what we’re up to.

Junction 24 Christmas Extravaganza

Hot on the heels of booking up the Honiton Beehive Gift & Craft Fair, we have another event announcement to make!

We will be hawking our Decopatch and Craft Kit wares at the very Victorian themed Junction 24 Christmas Extravaganza on the 9th November 2014. This event promises to be the biggest of its kind in the fair county of Somerset, and even claims to be the biggest indoor craft event in the West Country!

We’ll be dusting off our top hats and tailcoats to get into the swing of things, and welcome in the Christmas spirit. We hope to see you there for some festive arty fun.

For more information, ho-ho-hop onto the Junction 24 Christmas Extravaganza website.

Decopatch Aquapro Varnishes

Although Decopatch Glossy Glue contains a varnish, and is all you really need for your day-to-day decopatching, sometimes you may want a little more control over the finish, or perhaps you want something a little more durable.

The Aquapro range of varnishes gives you a choice of three finishes, two of which are food-safe. They reinforce the finish of the Glossy Glue, and provide added resistance to moisture, heat, and detergent – ideal for placemats and table tops.

All Aquapro varnishes are water-based, non-toxic, acid free, odourless and suitable for children to use.
