July magazine features

So, I mentioned a few posts ago that i was going to featured in a couple more craft mags in July. Well, here they are, Craftseller and Handmade Living. The feature in the first is about being a male in craft-world, and my experiences of it, and the latter is just my 'Whitby No.1' print featured in a seaside-themed spread. I'm very chuffed they wanted me!

Quite a Sheffield July..

Well, its already going on, so I'd better get a move on! 

After a month of travelling around out of town for fairs, this month is more of a Sheffield one..

On Saturday 14th July I'll be at the Banner Cross Family Festival at Banner Cross Methodist Church. It's not one i've been to before but I have heard lots of good things! Its runs from 11am until 4pm.

And on the following weekend (21st/22nd July) I'll be at the Folksy Fair in Endcliffe Park. This is part of 'The Folk Forest' music event, and it is the first time that Folksy have held a craft fair. There are going to be 35 craft stalls, all Folksy sellers, and it runs from 12pm-8pm both days. All very exciting!

Its going to be a busy weekend for me, because as well as selling my usual prints, I'm also selling souvenir 'Folk Forest' prints (as I did the linocut images), and my band (The Big Eyes Family Players) are also playing the festival on the Saturday too!

Then, the following Saturday (28th July) I'm running one of my linocut printing workshops at Cowlishaw Works. I'm blown away every time by what people end up with, and they seem pretty happy too (which is good)! The July one is full-up, but I still have a few places left on my workshop on Sat 15th September.
