A message from Artcore:
December is here and we hope that you are all safe and well and hopefully starting to get into the festive spirit.
November was by no means a quiet month for us and even in lockdown, we managed to find plenty to keep us busy and connected with people. From multiple interactive zoom and Facebook Live sessions to our brand new creative kits, we have been working hard to make sure as many people have access to arts and crafts, especially in the wintery lead up to Christmas.
Derby’s first Festive Market gets under way today, with creative crafts, gorgeous gifts and fabulous food to browse in the safe surroundings of the Derby Market Place venue.
When Derby Market Place launched in the summer as an outdoor dining area to support the local hospitality sector, it was designed with social distancing in mind. So it lends itself well to being a self-contained outdoor market space which can be regulated to be safe and Covid-compliant.
Rail Forum Midlands has joined a project which aims to help minimise the risks of the coronavirus pandemic on the transport manufacturing supply chain.

Junction Arts is the driving force behind annual local events such as the Tapton Lock Festival and the Bolsover Lantern Parade. Their events give people the opportunity to come together, to support one another and celebrate their communities. In a year of increased isolation and loneliness, Junction Arts has worked throughout with schools, care homes and community groups to bring the opportunity of conversation and friendship when people have needed it most.
Eight new retailers are set to open their doors at Derby Centre in time for the festive season.
The centre is preparing to welcome a mixture of new stores and pop-ups, including the winners of its Hatch competition.
Young Ideas will be opening its new Derbyshire location at the shopping destination tomorrow. It will open on Level 2 next to Ernest Jones, stocking both premium women’s and menswear.
We have a range of new work in the gallery for our 'Natural Christmas' exhibition which is being continuously added to our website.
Part of the exhibition features a showcase of new jewellery. 'Necklace 2020' is a collection of unique and one-off necklaces which celebrate the creativity and innovative work of the jewellers we already stock here at Gallerytop.
Each jeweller was asked to present just one necklace; an opportunity to make something new, to work in another way or in a different material.
With Christmas just around the corner, here at Artcore we have just the thing to get us all in the festive spirit and get people creating and crafting!
With our brand new Creative Craft Kits we have something for everyone. From children’s card making kits to creative watercolour kits, these brilliant kits make perfect gifts or are great to have a go at yourself! Check out our range of kits in our brand new online shop on our website!
