THE autumn Pop-Up of the North, hosted at York House in Malton, was a huge success with more than 15 high-end creative businesses attending.

The pop-up event, which ran from September 26 to 28, included a variety of workshops such as a coloured-clay workshop with Lydia Hardwick, beekeeping talks with Syrian academic Dr Ryad Alsous and modern calligraphy with Lonetree.

Carole Pinot, photographer and stylist, said: “What a great event. The perfect mix of crafts, vintage sellers and friendly creatives made it so much fun and a wonderful way to get to know some small businesses. So worth a visit and I came away with way more goodies than I had expected.”

Artist Mark Herald added: “It was great to visit the Pop-Up of the North and have my work displayed there. The show is full of work by exciting independent designers and makers, displayed in a setting full of character.”

The exhibitors also included luggage brand AATE, Bramper Biscuits, Linda Fenwick Shell Design, artist Lu Mason and The Lost Tea Company.

Bear Brooksbank, creative director at the jewellery company Bear Brooksbank, said: “I am usually based at Shoreditch in London, so I appreciate meeting my North Yorkshire clients. My parents live locally to Malton, so the Pop-Up of the North has been a great excuse to see them, although the event has been a busy blur so far.”

Event organiser Georgie Pridden said: “It’s an absolute honour to work with so many creative and talented exhibitors taking part in the event. This is only the second Pop-Up of the North and I very much look forward to organising many more to come.”

The event will partially donate funds to the Yorkshire Air Ambulance and the Marie Colvin Journalists’ Network.
