A worker in a skilled trade especially one that involves making things by hand….
Street markets where local artisans display handwoven textiles, painted ceramics and painted goods.
This week I visited Bath Artisan Market. it’s held in Green Park Station and has become a wonderful centre for local life and culture in the centre of Bath where rental and property prices are sky-high.
The Ethical Property Company provides space for local, ethical businesses and organisations to grow. a wonderful organisation that provides office, event and retail space to charities, social enterprises voluntary and campaign groups. The Artisan market is only one of many events that take place in this space…
It was my first visit and won’t be my last…….
First stop the bread stall oh my…. Now I love my bread and I have to say Taunton does not have an artisan baker but I found a truly wonderful one here… I learnt about ‘Donker’ bread a German dark bread made using rye, barley and coarse wholemeal flour, this ‘Donker’ also had the added delights of dried fruit and nuts…
It was a shopper’s dream, soap makers, glass blowers and photographers, every piece had been made with love and they were only too happy to chat and have photos taken….
In fact I might have a commission keep your fingers crossed……
