Find a rich selection of quality Christmas gifts handmade by over 30 Dorset craft makers and artists at Walford Mill in Wimborne from 2 November 2019. Prepare to be delighted by the range of exciting gift options from a diverse bunch of designer-makers and artists working in many disciplines including ceramics, bookbinding, jewellery and textiles.
You'll find gifts for stationery lovers thanks to local bookbinder Susan Green's special gift sets of Marbled Notebooks with handy labels to keep plans and notes organised. Her popular Mini Leather Journals bound in delightful colour combinations are back on the Mill's shelves and make fantastic stocking fillers or work Secret Santa presents.
After a period of uncertainty and upheaval, Walford Mill is now run by makers for makers, and is an inspiring place to visit for anyone with an interest in handmade craft.
During the festive period, as well as ticking items off your Christmas shopping list, you'll be able to watch local artists and makers at work thanks to the Mill's busy schedule of pop-up studios.
The launch evening of 'Christmas at the Mill' on Saturday 2 November 6 - 8pm promises to be a particularly good opportunity to meet many of the resident, pop-up and specially invited makers and artists.
Some of Dorset's most loved makers are still in permanent residence at the Mill, including silk weaver Debby Kirby, printmaker-illustrator Robin Mackenzie, contemporary aluminium artist Caroline Parrott and artisan embroiderer Jen Goodwin.
There's now even more to see at Walford Mill, thanks to the resident makers' efforts to secure the future of this well respected Dorset venue. Perhaps you'll be inspired to book on a workshop in the Mill's new light and airy teaching space, which is now on the ground floor and therefore accessible to everyone! Don't forget to pop to the bistro in the grounds of the Mill for a warming cup of coffee or a light lunch.
Christmas at the Mill runs from 2 November until 29 December at Walford Mill, Stone Lane, Wimborne, BH21 1NL Opening hours are Tuesday - Saturday 10am - 5pm and Sunday 11am - 4pm.
