Creative Collective Market

Creative Collective Market
1st May 2016 - 1st May 2016
Ocean Studios, Factory Cooperage, Royal William Yard, Plymouth


Bringing a fresh stance to the ‘indoor market’ tradition, Ocean Studios is launching a host of fresh contemporary events that showcase unique, creative design and art from a broad spectrum of talented makers, making all immediately accessible to the shopping public.   

Launching with the first general Creative Collective Market on Sunday May 1st  2016, all events will take place in the enigmatic Ocean Studios Project Space.  Bathed in natural light and with easy access and parking for exhibitors and visitors alike, the Ocean Studios indoor events will add a refreshing new dimension to Plymouth’s Royal William Yard.  

Across all events, shoppers can expect to discover inspiration in abundance, individual and fresh ideas and items and treasurable gifts for others and, of course, for oneself.  Plus the Creative Collective Markets all have the bonus of ensuring an exciting and sustainable trading environment for the artists, designer-makers and service providers. In addition the Markets open up the opportunity for those purchasing to meet the artists themselves, discuss and understand their works and inspirations and also propose commissions for future pieces. 

As far away as possible from a homogenous high street or shopping mall experience, the Creative Collective Markets and Wedding Markets are set to enliven Plymouth’s retail scene.

The Ocean Studios team is currently curating the range of exhibitors for these general and wedding events, and is open to applications from bespoke artists and photographers, high end crafters, jewellery and product designers and  creators of eclectic and beautiful anything!  Both established and newly emerging talents are invited to apply for the positions and the Ocean Studios team is especially interested in the most creative, original, unique, vintage, quirky, stylish and ahead of trend items and concepts that the industry has to offer.

Interested makers, designers, artists can rent a stand for between £65 - £125 including electricity and marketing. Tables, chairs and easels are available.  Card reader facilities available at an extra 5% cost.
