Tables are £25. The Make & Print Market will take place in the Grainger Market on each of the above dates, 9am to 5pm. You can book for as many or few dates as you like, a table and chairs are provided.

We’re also looking for related all ages activities the public can take part in during the market, with a friendly and creative atmosphere.

Each stall must have public liability insurance for £5 million. This is required by the council. We can recommend affordable PLI options designed specifically for artists and market traders.

Busy getting Social

This month I’ve set up some new places to find out about our market on the web.

We now have a Facebook page. Our Facebook group is still there and full of lovely discussions but we wanted somewhere to easily share our markets and stallholders work with fans, plus find some new fans along the way.

We also have Instagram. We’ll be using this to post pics of our market days and share brilliant work by our stallholders.

Come and say hello.

Make & Mend Fictional Worlds Market

Join us in your own fictional world.

Make & Mend has gathered the best artists, designers and makers in the North East for this very special market.

On Facebook? Join the Make & Mend Fictional Worlds event and invite your friends.

Our stallholders create their own worlds every time they make. We’ve chosen the most inspirational and unique in handmade, upcycled, local and independent work.

Beautiful art for your home. Custom designed items, just for you. Magnificent jewellery. Carefully created ceramics, fresh from the kiln. … and so much more.

Pop in for a short visit in your own Wonder Land or make it a grand day out. The Library has fantastic facilities for all with a lovely cafe, brilliant children’s area and of course books for you to read, borrow and get lost in. Located just off Whitley Bay main street, we’re easy to get to and a hop away from the beach on this Bank Holiday weekend.

Would you like to be part of this market?

We currently have stalls available. For details please email with a little bit about yourself and what you make. We love to see photos of your work.
