Made in Assynt & The Crafty Crofters
In December the previous ‘Made in Assynt’ caretaker informed us that after 8 successful years of organising craft markets and promoting the ‘Made in Assynt’ brand he was ready to pass on the baton.
We, the ‘Crafty Crofters’ had just organised the outdoor Christmas Craft Fair at Glen Canisp and realised we quite enjoyed being on the organisational side of it all. After several Zoom deliberations we therefore decided that we would accept the challenge and take over the ‘Made in Assynt’ website and the organising of the 2021 ‘Made in Assynt’ craft markets.
We realise we have some big shoes to fill as our predecessor put in a lot of work making the markets not just a successful selling platform for a wide range of talented local artists, makers, food producers but also a social hub for local charities to raise funds for their causes and for everyone to enjoy refreshments and a chat.
We are all very aware that 2021 is not going to be an entirely “normal” year and we’re expecting that Covid-19 related restrictions will most likely be with us for some time to come. Despite all the uncertainties this brings we feel positive about the future and look forward to welcoming you to the 2021 ‘Made in Assynt’ craft markets in whichever shape or form they will take place.
We hope to see you all there!
