Hastings Arts Forum Creative Christmas event opens this Thursday, 30 November with a launch party on Friday 1 December.

With the work of over 30 artists and  makers on show, there are gifts for all tastes and budgets. This year, there are fabulous ceramics from Branka Vrhovski-Stanton and Julia Hilton, lampshades and landscapes by Fiona Brown, upcycled clothes and craft kits from AfroRetro and a fabulous game about Hastings created by Emily and Arkady Johns.

This year, as well as exhibiting her paintings and enamel jewellery, Forum stalwart Katherine Reekie has created some Victorian-style 3-D viewers revealing surreal scenes.

Regular exhibitor Sassy Luke has more religious knickers and prints, and new-comer Linda King shares her beautiful  hand-painted birds and hands.

The show runs until 21 December and is a reliable source of unique Christmas gifts for everyone.
