Enjoy an afternoon of arts and crafts with the Nameless Exhibit in Tiverton this weekend.
The arts and crafts on display are made by members of the community who will then run the market that same day.
Organizer Emma Mullins said: “We have asked people, where possible, to reuse, recycle and recycle the materials around them to create their pieces for sale or display.
“The plan to hold family-focused workshops had to be scrapped or redesigned to meet the ongoing covid restrictions still in place today.
“No company or brand is running this event. One day, a local family had a fun idea because they love to create beautiful colors and then share it. This art exhibit is literally open to everyone. Every room in the room. he exhibition was created by local artists and residents, of all ages, genres and styles. We are equal, diverse and inclusive as a project. Just like our completely brilliant community, but especially shout out to all the wonderful children and young people who live here.
“There will be simple, inexpensive, family-centric food vans on the day. Summer noodles, pizza and ice cream run by local independent traders.
“There will also be a free snack and drink bar run by volunteers. Cakes, juices, cookies and fruit, all donated by families and local businesses.
“We think everyone definitely deserves a treat or two after the past 15 months, after over a year of hiding from each other. There will also be a local DJ and live music.
“As we are keen to keep costs down, we have tried to use what is around us as well as sourcing from local merchants and asking for donations.
“For example, we received a lot of art materials for free. But due to covid restrictions, we can no longer organize a large art workshop as originally planned, as people cannot share information. space and objects, so instead we will pack the materials into a ‘on the go’ style of birthing bag.
“This means they can take out and craft items in their own support bubble rather than a shared space on a community sharing table. The same goes for the free food bar – by purchasing single-use items ( not plastic) instead of shared catering items.
“We have a team of around 14 volunteers to help make the day run smoothly and safely.”
The event will be held on Sunday July 11 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Tiverton Pannier Market.
