Design Markets

Perthshire Creates organise pop-up design markets as a direct selling opportunity for local artists and designer-makers to showcase and sell their work. The design markets are curated to ensure that visitors can enjoy the highest quality handmade artisan products from across the area. Visitors are able to meet the maker, discover original and unusual artworks whilst supporting ‘buying handmade and local’.
