The Perthshire Creates Design Markets are a fantastic way to meet many of the areas fabulously talented makers, designers and artists at this our 5th Christmas Design Market, showcasing the work of 54 makers over the two day event.

The 2019 Christmas Design Market is on Saturday 23 & Sunday 24 November at the Civic Hall, 2 High Street Perth, with free entry* and open from 10-4.30pm each day.

The varied work includes glass, textiles, artwork, wood, photography, ceramics, jewellery, homewares, gifts & cards, all original designs, hand crafted and limited productions, making it easy to select unusual and often unique gifts, each with a story to tell.  Many of the artists taking part offer workshops and take commissions and the Design Market is a fantastic opportunity to find out more and start a conversation.
