To continue the update of the latest events, today I want to talk about the next event that we organised at Red Door, this being the Red Xmas Market (19th, 20th and 21st of December).
Before Christmas, together with the Red Door artists we decided that it was a very good time to create and organise an art market/fair at our studio, so we can show and sell some of our art works. Being inspired by the Christmas fever (here starts in November :P) we decorated our space in a Christmas magical universe, and again, we transformed our studio in a gallery/coffee place for 3 days. We repainted the wall, we hung red balls everywhere, we brought a lot of Christmas decorations and filled the walls and tables with drawings, illustrations, prints and paintings. We had all kinds of art works, various sizes and styles, and also some hand made jewellery and hand-woven baskets made by the Mangyan Iraya tribe from the Philippines.
Our concept was to create a space and an atmosphere so that once you get inside you want to stay for a while. Inspired by the famous Danish "hygge", which means creating a warm atmosphere and enjoying the good things in life, we wanted to attract the people in our space to enjoy our art, the colourful decorations, the warm glow of candlelights, a hot cup of chai or glogg (glogg is a hot, spiced wine, perfect for cold winter evenings), some home made cookies and of course, our presence. The event took place on 19th, 20th and 21st of December and we received many visitors that tasted our goodies, looked at and bought our art and enjoyed some quality time in our warm jazzy candle-lighted studio.
We had a great time and we must say thank you to everyone that helped us, visited and enjoyed some nice time with us. More will come!
