Our Christmas Arts Market is back to offer a festive selection of some of the best work from designer-makers in Birmingham, the West Midlands and beyond. With a track record for presenting high-quality work in a range of different crafts, Midlands Arts Centre is an established market destination for the public, collectors, galleries, and retailers to buy and commission the very best in unique crafts, direct from the maker.

This year’s Christmas Arts Markets will take place throughout MAC’s ground floor foyer and MAC Bar, as well as the Performance Studio on the first floor. The market dates will be:
