Students at Bath College are bringing Christmas to Green Park Station with a festive market selling hand-made gifts and food.

 

The market, on Thursday December 3, will involve students from across the college, including music, floristry and art and design students.

 

In the college’s art and design department, students have been hard at work designing products to sell, from cushions and mugs to bags and scarves.

Visitors will be able to buy Christmas bouquets and wreaths, as well as jams, pickles and hot drinks to warm their hands up.

 

There will be winter wonderland workshops for children with face-painting, a tombola and entertainment from music and performing arts students.

 

The Christmas market follows on from a summer market at Green Park Station, where students showcased their skills during free ‘have-a-go’ activities.

 

Darren Rogers, enterprise and innovation manager at Bath College, is keen to make sure students develop business skills early on in their careers.

 

He said: “Products will be made locally by local students who are working and training here to develop their careers.

 

“This is a clear indication of where the college is headed in terms of making enterprise one of its key priorities for learners.

 

“It’s a great chance for our students to understand the production process, from design and making through to selling the finished product at a market to real customers.”

 

The market will run from 12pm to 6pm.
