From own blend tea leaves to printed t’s – iadt’s christmas market

Supported by the IADT Enterprise society it is a yearly run event to showcase student’s talent and make some Christmas cash. First year Business and Entrepreneurship students mandatorily run and create some of the stalls, where the creation of a business is part of their assessment. 
However all students are welcome to set up and sell from Visual Art students to Cultural Enterprise students. Graded or not there are some great products on sale.
From crepes and PS3 by a group of First Business and Entrepreneurship, who said they were doing well for themselves.
To Zen Hen Tea run by Aidan Walsh another first year Business student. Zen Hen Tea makes their own blend of tealeaves including a Christmas tea, which was delicious.
