Hen’s Teeth Christmas Bazaar brings sustainable and creative gifts to Dublin 8

Hen’s Teeth gallery’s christmas event

Hen’s Teeth gallery are starting off their first festive season in their new Fumbally premises in style, with a Christmas Bazaar event taking place over three weekends in December.

“It’s a small replacement for the wonderful work that the Dublin Flea did,” Lily Finlay of Hen’s Teeth told the Liberty. “It could be a good opportunity to talk about the increase in more sustainable, local Christmas shopping.”

Bazaar, a creative collective, have curated a selection of more than 30 local makers who will sell gifts, homewares and fashion at the specially constructed market in the run up to Christmas. The craftspeople taking part in the market include knitwear designer Pearl Remmington, homeware designers Electronic Sheep, jewellery makers Capulet and montague and many more. 

There are also make your own gift workshops, such as wreath making and riso printing. 

The stalls will be at home among Hen’s Teeth range of art, homewares and books, making the event the perfect place to browse gifts for friends or family. 

Hen’s Teeth new diner will also get a chance to shine, as they’ll be serving up coffees, wines and a series of festive treats. The diner has a food menu designed by chef Karl Whelan of Hang Dhai Chinese.

Hen’s Teeth founder Greg Spring said, “It’s important to us that we can offer part of our new space up to some of the local creative heads in the city. It means a lot to us to be able to do this.” 

With a severe lack of creative spaces or sustainable shopping opportunities in Dublin at the moment, Hen’s Teeth are hoping to highlight the “ever increasing shortage of cultural spaces to hold events like this,” according to Lily.

The Bazaar had its first weekend last week and will continue this weekend the 13th of December and again on the 20th. It runs on Friday evening from 6pm-10pm and Saturday and Sunday from 12pm-9pm.
