The second Happy Pop-Up market will have more than 40 designers and artists selling their products in three currently empty shops in the shopping centre at 13 Lindenau Markt.
This is your chance to find homemade, unique gifts, clothes, accessories and art work, and to meet the artists and designers behind all the creativity.

Along with all the other art goodies on show over this coming weekend, Maeshelle West-Davies will be opening her studio doors for the first time.
One of the pieces she will be showing is a collaboration with Croatian artist Anita Kontrec. Based on one of the world’s greatest literary works, the diary of a 11th century Japanese lady in waiting, Kontrec’s piece was comprised of 20 pieces of fabric (10 x 1.5 meters) hung to create a dream landscape. The piece kept growing and took on a life of its own. Maeshelle’s film recreates an experience in which two dancers were placed in the space and left to react to it.
