August events

Howdy. So the years whizzes on. Can't quite believe we're already over half-way through it! I'm on the case with a fair few new prints and some exciting events...

So to August. I'm selling at two fairs/markets.

Firstly there is 'Reetsweet' in Leeds. Its a 2-day craft extravaganza at the Corn Exchange on Sat 6th and Sunday 7th August, 11am-5pm.

Secondly there is the Devonshire Market in Sheffield on Sat 27th August. It is a Farmers Market type event, with all sorts of art, food, clothes and other goodies.

Leisure Painter Magazine

I've been commissioned to write an article about the basics of linocut printing for 'Leisure Painter' magazine. The featured issue is out now (Summer 2011). It explains what equipment you need, how to compose your image, printing methods and hints and tips. 

I'll be following this up in the near future with an article about more advances linocut techniques.
