Fenland artists to stage unique art fair at Chatteris studio

TWO Fenland artists hold a unique arts and crafts event in Chatteris on Saturday December 3 which they hope will become a monthly event next year.

The unusual aspect of Richard Savage and Marian Savill’s event is that artists and makers will sell their work from suitcases.

Mr Savage, who runs Savage Studios in Chatteris where the event will be held, said: “We wanted to organise an event which is different from the more traditional arts and crafts fairs and came up with the idea of selling work from suitcases.

“It sounds a little off the wall but we hope it will attract lots of visitors to see what it’s all about.”

Ms Savill, from Guyhirn, said: “it’s a great opportunity for artists to display and sell their work in a new, inventive way.”

The event is open from 11am-3pm. Paintings and prints, jewellery, greeting cards, bags, textiles, Christmas items, incense and herbal soaps will all be available.
