As the weeks are ticking by we are growing in anticipation for the first ever Make it Up North event. The Art Market, an established art, contemporary craft and design event, evolved from this idea and has now come up with a new business venture called “Make it Up North” in York, to support, promote and encourage artists to show their work and the general public to buy in the north rather than going elsewhere.
We have chosen our own top five artists exhibiting at the event:
‘Make it Up North‘ will take place in the centre of York in the historic Guildhall near Betty’s Tea Room off St. Helen’s Square.
