More than 1,500 visitors headed to Peel at the weekend for an artisan Christmas fair.

Artreach Studios and the House of Manannan hosted more than 25 stalls featuring quality produce and gift ideas from island crafters, artists and independent traders for Hygge Christmas.

They offered a selection of jewellery, paintings, ceramics, prints, photography, artisan candles, delicious food, Christmas florals and more.

Kate Jerry, of Artreach, told Island Life: ‘The event went extremely well, with over 1,500 visitors to enjoy quality stalls. I heard footfall was amazing over the weekend in the rest of Peel too. It was such a brilliant opportunity for artists, crafters and artisan food and drink providers to showcase their work, get exposure and help support business through direct sales to the public and ongoing publicity.’
