Started by a group of UWE photography students, VELCRO is a collaborative pop-up shop and photography studio based at UWE's Frenchay campus in Bristol. They opened their first pop-up store back in November, which saw a room at Frenchay turned into a woodland-themed shop showcasing photography and illustrations and selling prints, cosmetics and vintage clothing.


VELCRO's Christmas po-up store and studio is open all day on Friday 22nd and Saturday 23rd December in The Arcade. For more information on the store, contact VELCRO via email or visit the store's Facebook page.
