We are excited to announce our new collection of crafts, and reveal more about the artists. Everything is now on display at the theatre and available to buy just in time for Christmas.
In our recent call-out for local artists and crafters, we were looking to partner with people to provide a collection of beautiful, bespoke, handmade items to be sold in the Mercury Gift Shop that not only reflects their artistic vision, but are also sustainable, ethically-made, and unique.
Local artist Tina Bullen has created a wonderful bespoke collection especially for the Mercury called Woodland Poetry, which celebrates the beauty of nearby Highwoods Country Park. These are available now as greetings cards.
The collection consists mainly of original drawings, with the theme lending itself to images such as trees, pathways, crows, murmurations, and original poetry written by the artist, all rendered in ink marker or biro. She also does full-size paintings, but unfortunately we are only able to display the cards. However, if you like her work and think you might be interested in some of the bigger pieces we can put you in touch.
If you want to explore the full range of crafts or purchase any items, you can come along to the theatre and find the items in our Box Office displays. This is your perfect opportunity to come and look for the perfect Christmas gift, whilst also supporting local artists.
