A Hive of Halloween Activity

Craft Fairs

We had a great time at the Sidmouth Donkey Sanctuary Autumn Craft Fair last weekend. It was good to meet lots of new people and great to see some old friends.

Our next show will be at The Beehive gift and craft fair in Honiton this Saturday, 18th October 2014. You’ll be able to find us and Artie upstairs – just follow the signs.


Halloween is the perfect excuse to get makey and crafty. Every year, I always love making my own costumes. It’s always fun to take inspiration from all of the ghoulish goings on at this time of year, and make some art – whether it’s bat wings constructed out of wire coat hangers and old tights, or scary papier mâché masks based on characters from my favourite horror film.

Have a look for Halloween decoration and craft ideas on our website.

Decopatch Kits

We will be putting our Decopatch animal and letter kits online very soon. We will have a choice of papers as well as different sized animals to choose from, and you will be able to build your own custom kit using our interactive kit maker!

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.
