CRZyBest & Friends at Derby City Lab

A collaboration of wonderfully talented Derby creatives using both traditional and new materials and process, taking part in a whole variety of ways; including displaying and selling their creations, demonstrations and hands on workshops where you can come and make your own things, and of course if they aren't there to chat to in person (most will be at some point during opening hours) then there will be information about the wonderful things that they offer!

Love Lalaland created this smiley picture to give a sneak peek of who's taking part in CRZyBest & Friends at Derby City Lab, so do come and visit, check out some of the fantastic talent in Derby and see what they have to offer. Perhaps even do some Christmas shopping, or if it's a bit early for that, than I'm sure you will find some lovely Halloween inspired pieces, from jewellery to homeware and a few things in between!

We will have lots of creations on display and many of them ready to buy as well as our own resident photographer Rachael Ashley. As well as my own metal clay creations: we have gorgeous glassware by Crafty Glass Studio; quirky clay creations by Sarah Lilian Ceramics; sumptuous smelling candles and wax melts from Candle-Mad; handwoven textiles and brightly coloured jewellery from Thunderbug Designs; upcycled cans and maps creating present perfect pictures from All Arty Crafty; Sustainable paintings from Diana Green Artist; funky upcycled lamps from Stage Left Lux, fabulously hand painted furniture by Little Ivy Designs, find out what Sustainable workshop offerings Thread of Life has and take a look at the exquisite dress making skills of Fiona Elizabeth Couture, or go digital and check out what CAD for Fashion does! Get hands on with Danny from Tubo Gift Shop and create your very own Tubot, or buy your favourite from the display. We even have a special offer on some pink gin, made in Derby by Withers Gin, especially to celebrate CRZyBest & Friends at Derby City Lab.

Look out for the balloon arch on St James's Street in Derby City Centre on opening day and come and find out what else we have added since I wrote this blog. Here's a list of our opening times as fitted into our rota of local creative, volunteer collaborators.
