Ben Holden (bjthebear.com), a designer from Bradford with a passion for print purchased a Riso machine in April 2017. He has invited friends to help him explore the creative possibilities of this once-obsolete technology. Many will be producing Riso prints for the first time and have been invited to take Bradford’s buildings and landscape as starting points for their experiments.

All prints for sale with over 50 artists taking part, and includes my Shipley Clocktower.

Craft Centre and Design Gallery (map)

Extremely honored to be asked to submit one off my prints for this exhibition which is to celebrate 35 years of the Craft Centre and Design Gallery in Leeds (just under Leeds Art Gallery)

"The skills of master printmakers are explored in this beautiful group exhibition of etchings, mezzotints, linoprints, screenprints, collagraphs, drypoints and woodcuts by some of the most celebrated printmaker’s of our time.  Featuring 16 printmakers; some established and who we’ve had the pleasure of working with for the past 35 years and those that we've recently discovered."

For information about the artist s taking part, plus some lovely quotes about their experience with working with the gallery visit the website here.

Victoria Hall (map)

Every year so far that I have been selling my prints I seem to have missed this lovely fair in the centre of one of my favourite places.  The Yorkshire CND fundraiser is back this year at the beautiful Victoria Hall with a fantastic array of craft stalls, delicious vegetarian food, complementary therapies and hopefully this year, a Santa’s grotto.

A really great way to start this year's run of Christmas events, I can't wait!

This is the first Christmas Market by this great venue in a wonderful Mill complex in Farsley.

It sounds like the perfect way to get ready for Christmas with mulled wine, mince pies, carol singing choirs and a selection of fantastic makers and artists spread across the gallery and finishing room.
