We hope you have had a good start to July. The Sun is starting to show some signs of making an appearance here.

Our last weekend in June was fabulous as we were at the wonderful St Georges Hall with so many amazing independent artists. It was an absolute delight to be there.

The atmosphere was so warm and welcoming. The organisers, Open Culture, did an amazing job.

We were then treated to the delights of Port Sunlight and were at “Handmade Fairs” which is jointly run by Port Sunlight Trust and Landbaby and Co. The setting was beautiful – we were in Bridge Cottage. Bridge Cottage is one of the largest and most architecturally significant in Port Sunlight. It is thought to have been built for the creator of the Lever Brothers Empire William Hesketh Lever who lived there on occasion between 1893 and 1900 while his primary residence in Thornton Hough was being renovated. Bridge Cottage has been continuously occupied by someone of important standing within the village and factory communities since 1900, including the schoolmaster, gallery curator, an eminent Dutch scientist, and the Lever Brothers company secretary. During the First World War it functioned as a crèche for women working in the factory and in the Second World War it suffered bomb damage after a land mine was dropped close by. More recently, the cottage has been home to the ministers of Christ Church until it was sold to Port Sunlight Village Trust in July 2015.

The next Handmade Fair at Bridge Cottage is on 11th September so put a date in your diaries if you would like to see the inside of this lovely place.

9th July – Wirral Farmers Market;

16th July – S-Luxe sample sale fashion show at Camp and furnace

24th July – Dabble workshop open to public at Claremont farm Wirral -prebooking essential.

Hope we’ll catch up with you soon!

Baltic Market views: 175

We were really excited to be part of the farmers market at the Baltic Market yesterday. We registered our interest as soon as we heard that a market was going to be running there – just by the old Cains Brewery. For years we have thought that Liverpool was crying out for a local market […]

Spring Break! views: 186

So – our pledge of writing a regular blog sort of faded into the background as we crazily made chocolate for Mothers’ Day and Easter. We hope you managed to follow us on Instagram as we absolutely loved taking part in  the #MarchMeetTheMaker Challenge – this was set by Joanne Hawker and many of our […]
