The Green Loop Eco Makers Market

The Festival of Making 2022

Audiences returned to Blackburn to experience music, art, performance, markets, talks and a diverse programme of creative workshops.

Hopeful and Glorious curated the makers market in Blackburn Cathedral. The cathedral hosted 40 brilliant designers, makers and artists.

The day opened with a rousing round of sustainability bingo. The Sewing Bee’s Patrick Grant highlighted the environmental impact of fast fashion. After an incredible market day, we were joined by potter and Great Pottery Throwdown judge Keith Brymer Jones, in conversation with Wayne Hemingway. An absolute treat!
