For the third year running  artisan designers Pat Holtom and Jackie Roberts encourage you to support local artisan business and do your Christmas gift shopping on Gozo – no crowds, no cheap imports and no loud music!  Just quality contemporary craft displayed in the courtyard and millroom of a beautiful old farmhouse in Gharb.

Pat is showing a new collection of hand-painted silk scarves. Each one an original work of art.  Alongside her woven textiles, ties, bags and cushion covers  she is exhibiting golden wall hangings created during the summer.  There are also new collaborations by the two makers combining woven textiles with metal and plant fibres.
