Statement from Peak District Artisans:
COVID-19 is impacting on all of us and PDA as an organisation is no exception.
Our next event was to have been Derbyshire Open Arts at the end of May – this has now been cancelled.
We have also taken the decision to cancel the remaining PDA events for this year, that is the Summer Art Fair at the Whitworth Centre in July, and the Great Dome Art Fair in Buxton in October.
Although the GDAF is just under 7 months away we do not feel it is sensible to commit to a physical show, which requires months of organisation & preparation, at this uncertain time.
We are however, planning an amazing online show which will replace the Dome as out flagship event for 2020.
Plus, we have already committed to return to the Dome in July 2021, to celebrate what will be our 30th anniversary year.
The Great Online Art and Design Fair
Where they can, PDA members are still working from home.
In October 2020 the group will be running a massive online show featuring the best of Peak District creativity.
The show will be hosted on the artisans’ updated website, launching soon.
