As the Clipper crews sail into the city this week, a ripple of creativity swells in the Craft Village with the arrival of the Clipper Craft Pop Up Shops. Showcasing Crafts in the north west, the POP UP SHOP and SHOWCASE will be awash with beautifully handmade and embellished ceramics, jewellery, textiles, fashions and furniture. The makers will be on hand to show their works and offer something unique for a special occasion or gift.

Welcoming the POP-UP SHOPS to the Craft Village, Managing Director of Inner City Trust, Helen Quigley said: “The Craft Village is the perfect venue for the Clipper Creativity POP-UP SHOPS. Customers will also see the new-look Village Square which is now covered by a glass canopy, and enjoy its unique atmosphere.”

The Clipper POP UP shop and SHOWCASE remains open until Sunday, July 8. Opening weekdays 11am – 4pm, Saturday 10 - 4pm and Sunday 12pm -4pm.

The initiative is supported by Derry City Council.
