The Trinity Collective in Swindon will be opening its doors this weekend for a Christmas Market showcase event.

The tattoo and piercing studio - located within Swindon's Cheney Manor industrial estate - provides a platform for local artists to showcase their work in exhibitions run by the studio's staff. 

The exhibition themes are changed regularly and the studio gives a variety of local artists the opportunity to submit their work for display. 

Its Christmas market event will take place on Saturday, 11 December at the studio and run between 10am - 6pm.

The open-day style market will make use of the studio's in-store shop, which will feature stalls from a variety of local artists and creators. 

The Christmas market will also offer members of the public the opportunity to take a look around the studio and meet its staff. 

The studio's full address is Unit 25, Pembroke Centre, Flexspace, Cheney Manor Industrial Estate, SN2 2PQ.

The items on sale range from wax candle melts to porcelain creations, from handmade jewellery to homemade foodie treats and furniture made from upcycled materials.

Art supplies including paint for mural makers and pens, pads, and pencils for budding artists are also on sale within the studio.

In January, The Trinity Collective will be starting and running four sets of drawing sessions, including after school kids clubs, drop-in Tuesdays, and coffee and crafts aimed at the more mature artists.

The Trinity Collective's Ant Eagles said: "We're a collective, so we're aiming for our little pipe dream of a store to become a growing, thriving and supportive central hub of the local artists community. We also believe everyone with a creative inclination should be welcomed, and has something to add. Positive vibes!

"We're following up the tremendous success of our last two open days with our Christmas market, and cannot wait to welcome you all back and show off your creative things you've been up to, just in time for Chrstmas.

"There's no greater joy than buying something that's been made with care and love, or selling products of your creativity."
