HAAN Christmas Design Market is a new, high quality showcase of creative products from over 50 local, national and international designers and makers. A local word for ‘hand’, HAAN celebrates and showcases the best handmade treats from the region.

Come along for a festive journey to discover the wide range of top-quality creative products from Aberdeen and beyond. Over 50 talented and highly skilled designers and makers will be in the scenic Marischal Quad, offering you their wares this Christmas. Choose from a carefully curated selection of jewellery, ceramics, textiles, illustration, apparel, homeware and lifestyle products. There will be something to suit all budgets, so you can treat yourself and your loved ones to something very special this Christmas.

Along with the market, we are offering the chance to try your hand at making some super cool Christmas decorations, a funky set of Christmas cards, and an alternative upcycled Christmas gift! Inspiring local designers will guide you through the process at family friendly workshops for the Creatively Christmassy.

A further programme of events for professional designers and makers will take place at the Anatomy rooms behind Marischal Quad. If you would like to hear inspirational industry professionals talk about their work, or are interested in mentorship and advice on how to grow and develop your creative business then join us in the ‘HAAN Makers Lounge’ for a series of evening lectures and sign up for one to one professional development sessions.

When you need to take a break from browsing, we’ve made sure you can refresh and refuel in FINE, our pop-up cafe courtesy of some of the best of Aberdeen’s independent coffee shops.

HAAN is commissioned by Aberdeen City Council and Aberdeen Inspired, and supported by Creative Scotland place partnership.
