Colonnade House is delighted to announce its third Festive Pop-up shop, a two-week opportunity to purchase unique and artistic gifts during the festive season.
Run by the tenants who work in Colonnade House’s studios, as well as a few other independent makers based in and around Worthing, the shop will once again offer the chance to engage with local creatives whilst shopping for beautifully crafted presents. Items for sale will include screen prints, illustrated Christmas cards, hand poured candles and limited edition ceramics.
On Thursday 20 Colonnade House will be open until 20.00 for late night shopping. As well as picking up some last minute gifts and chatting to the artists, family-friendly music event organiser TotRockinBeats will be DJing just outside of the gallery from 18.00 - 20.00. We hope that people will join us to enjoy some festive tunes.
