The Sorting Office Winter Open Studios

The Sorting Office held it’s hugely successful annual Winter Open Studios over the weekend of 19th – 20th November.

This year saw a big increase in sellers at the Makers Fayre and the addition of Saturday’s Food on the Forecourt which included food stalls; Catch a Fire, My Chocolate Gallery, Fordingbridge Fudge, and Suzette’s Pancakes.

A record number of people passed through the Sorting Office doors over the weekend, over 850 curious visitors who were keen to meet the residents and browse the studios. Many of those visitors took the opportunity to make a start on their Christmas shopping, buying gifts directly from the makers.

Residents, Biscuit Collective, used chalk spray paint to create directional signs on the streets around the Sorting Office which steered the Christmas crowds towards the Open Studios. Buskers then entertained the crowds on the Saturday and early plans are already in the pipeline to expand the Summer Open Studios in 2017.
