Upcoming Aug/Sept events


I thought 'd post up a few events that I'm taking part in over August and September. 

1. Devonshire Market - Sat 27th August 2011
On the bank holiday weekend, there will be a sizeable market happening on Devonshire Green in Sheffield; lots of art, craft, food, gifts and, apparently now, live music too! The last market there was a lot of fun, so I'm looking forward to it!

2. Art In The Gardens - Sat 3rd/ Sun 4th September 2011
I'll be selling my work at this event for the first time. An established art-only fair held in the beautiful Botanical Gardens in Sheffield. It is apparently the largest outdoor art exhibition in the north of England! My pal Lianne Mellor (Mellorware) will also be selling there.

3. Saltaire Makers Fair - Saturday 10th September 2011
Part of the famous Saltaire Festival, a one-off quality fair based in Victoria Hall, Saltaire, Yorkshire. 

4. Crucible Craft Workshop - Sat 17th September 2011
The Crucible Theatre in Sheffield have decided (in their wisdom!) to host a series of craft workshops from September. I'm running the first one, on 17th Sept, 10.15am-4.15pm. I'll be teaching linocut printing. The class will be suitable for beginners and also people who have dabbled a little in printing before. If you do want to book a place (only 8 available), call the Crucible on 0114 201 3831 or email

5. Mary's Marvellous Vintage & Craft Market - Sat 24th September 2011
A new market in Sheffield, held in a really great location; St Mary's Church on Bramall Lane. 50 stalls of quality arts, craft and vintage items, plus some seriously tasty cakes. This place has a reputation for such things!

Thats it, for now. Oh, I have made some more printworks mugs, so will be taking those along to the fairs/markets!
