START IN SALFORD CHRISTMAS MARKET STALL
 

Star date: 9th December 2011

TOP SALFORD THEMED PRESENTS
No 1: Gifts from the Start Creative Christmas Market Stall
Brazenose Street, Manchester

Top art project, Start Creative, is selling unique gifts hand crafted in Salford at its stall at Manchester Christmas Market. Goods range from bread boards made from local trees to ceramics and art works, with different artists featured every week until Christmas. And, as Miranda Hogan discovers, all proceeds go to the great cause that is Start in Salford.

Start In Salford Christmas Market Stall

For anybody looking to find a unique gift this Christmas, head down to the Start Creative stall at the bottom of Brazenose Street at the Manchester Christmas Market.

Start Creative is the trading arm of Start in Salford, a charity that strives to rehabilitate people with mental health issues by helping them to learn different crafts such as pottery and woodwork. The artists are then supported in selling the products which they have made.

Not only do the members study a craft, they also acquire fundamental social skills and get involved with the trading, providing them with valuable experience which supports the transition to working life.

This is Start in Salford's sixth year on the markets, and given the notable success of previous years, they are doing a five week stint, their longest yet. Each week, the stall will feature the work of a different artist, handmade kitchenware being a forte. Wooden chopping boards and attractive ceramics are just some of the items available that would make unique gifts. All of the goods are produced with great care and attention, designed and created by Start in Salford members.

Ben Thomas, creative manager of Start in Salford says, "It really gives our members a feeling of self-worth to see people admiring and buying things which they have created, things that they have made.''

So, avoid the department stores this Christmas and treat somebody in your life to a one off piece, handmade by these talented artists. And welcome the season of good will by supporting this worthy cause. All proceeds go back into the charity to continue Start's great work…

Fantastic to hear what great work Start in Salford are doing, I hope they get lots of support with such a worthy cause. I'll try and get over to the market and visit the stall, time permitting. Well done to Miranda too on another great article.
