Hello 2017!

Hello 2017……..
Purbeck Artisan Yard Grand Opening with Mayor of WarehamWelcome Purbeck Aristan Yard followers to another very exciting year at the Purbeck Artisan Yard, Wareham.
The yard opened in April 2016 and it has been a roaring success for all the Artisans and Upcylers involved. 

There's been a hive of activity since it opened in 2016 with so many wonderful events, from  ‘The Grand Opening’, The Charity Vintage Tea Party  (lots of scrummy cake!!!),  Wareham Wednesdays Late Night Opening, Our Yard Scarecrow (who was based on James from the Salt Pig) The ‘Winter Wednesdays’ Late Night Shopping and our superb Christmas Markets- This was just in the first eight months!!!!

In addition to all the fabulous events that have taken place at the Artisan Yard we also held some excellent workshops- hence the reason why we have such an enormous table!!
Knit and Knatter with SarahIn 2016 we held Drink and Draw with the talented Mark Page, a brilliant lampshade making course with the reputable Jenny Sibthorp and our regular Knit & Knatter with the lovely Sarah.

Well, here are some of the courses that are happening over the next couple of months.  Take and look and book on!

The yard is home to over thirteen different Artisan Units- some of which are made up of a few different businesses, so we have a broad range of artisan produce, vintage homeware, upcycled furniture and lots more.  The yard is always changing- with so much to buy!!

If you are trying to find us- because of the nature of our fabulous industrial building- we are tucked away off the main drag of the high-street.  To find us- look out for the purple signs that are dotted around the town with our logo on. They will lead you to us and click on this link & you will find us and so many brilliant Artisans.

Sketch of a Hare by Mark PageNot only has there been a hive of activity in the Yard- but Purbeck in general.  The Isle of Purbeck has been in the media spotlight this month with Britain’s Best Walks with Julia Bradbury’ on ITV  & our stunning coastline was featured on Channel 4 ‘Jamie & Jimmy’s Friday Night Feast’ as we saw Jimmy kayaking and spearfishing out to Old Harry Rocks.  Last week the Artisan Yard was extremely excited as we welcomed the Winter watch 2017 team who returned to Arne this week to capture nature at its best. The set designers popped into the Artisan Yard and purchased some items for the ‘outdoor studio’. Have a look and see if you can spot anything from the Artisan Yard?
