Project Object

DELIGHTED to say that Bonker*s Clutterbucks have been selected to work with the wonderful Grundy Art Gallery and Blackpool Council to work with the community to produce a range of saleable products for the art gallery and tourist office shops, as part of “Project Object”. We’ll be able to explore the cities wonderful archives for inspiration and plan to make some models and card modelling kits inspired by Blackpool’s historic collections and built heritage. We’ve been playing around with card and cardboard and are itching to get stuck in.

Castlefield Artisan Market

Final push as we prepare for our last event this year Castlefield Artisan Market, Castle Street, Manchester, this FRIDAY 23rd, 10am to 9pm. We are particularly chuffed to be taking part in this event as it is only the 4th ever Artisan Market to be held here and it also happens to be the brainchild of a lovely couple from Helmshore who have been planning this remarkable market for years. We were genuinely wowed when we visited the market in November as it was a serious foodie fair / come mini Camden or Portobello Road market..with northern edge – all rolled into one. There was some extremely cool vintage ware, live jazz and Cotton Club dancers. Would LOVE to learn! The area has been regenerated while maintaining industrial heritage and the market is ideally situated between the industrial arches and the canal surrounded by great modern architecture and houseboats.  This Friday there will be lots of award winning food, drinks, last minute gifts and live music… PLUS ….BBC North West will be reporting live from there from 6.30 pm… so look out for Bonker*s Clutterbucks if you’re able! Oh and please wish us luck as it’ll be an extremely long day for the girls…. it’s cold up north, we’re all feeling pretty ropey + Peter has his annual man flu! X


Christmas at Treacle

Bonker*s Clutterbucks were invited to take part in Treacle Christmas Market which took place today….. a truely scrummy, magical, atmospheric and humbling event. 

The snow was falling heavily at 6 – 8am in Lancashire but miraculously we made it to Macclesfield and set up in a prime spot on Chestergate. Here are some of the sights before our camera started playing up.
