Best Things to do this Weekend Brighton 21st - 22nd November 2015

Christmas Artists Open Houses

The Artists Open Houses is a brilliant annual free event where artists and makers open their houses and studios, letting art lovers browse and buy original artwork direct from the artist. The 2015 festival takes place during the last two weekends of November and first two weekends of December. With a focus on quality and value for money, the Artists Open Houses festival aims to bring a dynamic mix of arts and crafts to the widest possible audience. Expect a wide range of art including jewellery, ceramics and textiles, paintings, sculpture, printmaking, photography and many other media.

Animal Exhibition

Between the 1st and 29th November, the Naked Eye Gallery will be celebrating the natural world from a zoological perspective in the Animal Exhibition. The exhibition is a varied and dynamic blend of photo real, surreal and 3D work by renowned and respected artists Sara Abbott, Dylan Floyd, Susan Taylor, Lauren Alderslade and 3D ceramicist James Fenner among others. Each and every artist involved in the exhibition have created an impressive body of work, all uniquely different and all completely charming in their own right. The common element between them is that their work is fuelled by their passion for animals.

MADE Brighton Design and Craft Fair

Yes, it’s that time again and would you believe MADE is 10 years old?! As always it’s a great place to buy original and exceptional pieces of craft and design direct from the designers and makers and has become firmly established as a friendly, accessible and top quality event. Made Brighton welcomes over 5,500 visitors; collectors, galleries, curators and, of course, Christmas shoppers, many of whom return year on year knowing that the work on show is well worth viewing. It showcases over 100 makers and designers; from unique glassware to luxurious textiles, functional ceramics to dazzling jewellery, beautiful furniture to quirky accessories, there is something for everyone. Work is priced between £10 and £1500. A café provides a place for visitors to relax and take refreshments.
