September and October goings on..

Yes, I've already mentioned September in my last post, but more things have popped up, so i thought I'd mention them.

August was a fab month. Running a workshop for Copy/Print It at the Site Gallery, and taking part in Art In The Gardens and the Saltaire Makers Fair were really great fun. I met a lot of friendly people and talented makers. I even bought myself something from a fair (which doesn't happen often!), being a lovely pot from The Old Brewery Pottery, who were selling at the Saltaire event. Here it is:

Anyway, on to September and October...

I'm taking part in the following events:

Thursday 20th September to Sunday 30th September 2012, The Arrivals Zone, outside Sheffield Train Station, Sheffield, all day! This is an event in collaboration with the School of Architecture, as part of the 'Festival Of The Mind', to publicise Sheffield art and culture. A container will be placed outside the train station for 10 days, and turned into a shop/tourist office, selling my prints as well as works by Kid Acne, Phlegm and Theo Simpson. I'm in good company there!

Saturday 22nd September 2012, Mary's Marvellous Craft & Vintage Market, St Mary's, Bramall Lane, Sheffield, 10am-5pm. £1 entry. First anniversary of the market that has pretty much become the best in the city.

Sunday 23rd September 2012, Nether Edge Farmer's Market, Nether Edge Road, Sheffield, 12pm-4pm. Weird food, morris dancers and loads of stuff to buy!

Sunday 7th October 2012, Sharrow Vale Market, Sharrowvale Road, Sheffield, 12pm-4pm. Weird food, jazz and loads of stuff to buy!

Saturday 20th October 2012, Meersbrook Bank Autumn Fayre, Sheffield 11am-3pm. A fund-raising event at a local primary school.

Saturday 20th October 2012, Beady Eye Art Exhibition, location TBC, 6pm onwards. I took part in this last year, and it was a lot of fun. A pop-up art exhibition for one night only!


My new plates are in the kiln, as we speak, so I'll have some pics of them up soon. I'm working hard on new landscapes, donkey-themed prints and lots more.

Speaking of donkeys, my 'Red Donkey Regrets' sold out of its original edition of 100 last month. I had no idea it'd be so popular. Since then, I've been asked a fair bit about if he will return. Now, I can't hand-print any more, but I have created a new poster-print version, in different colours. It is now in my folksy shop and available at fairs too. See what you think!
