I have had a few weeks without posting, as I've been busy printing more items and preparing for Didsbury Arts Festival, which starts on Saturday 24 September 2011, less than a week away!
From this Wednesday Cathy Gibson, fellow printmaker, and I will have our work on show in the window of the Cheese Hamlet on Wilmslow Road in Didsbury Village. I have selected 4 of my linocuts to go in: Scottish Sheep, Rooftop, Barn Owl and Manchester Old & New I. And Cathy has created a "Say Cheese" 3 colour reduction linocut print specially for the occasion. It sounds as though we will be taking over much of the window space - and we can't wait to fix things up Wednesday morning, with the help of the Cheese Hamlet team.
On Sunday 25 September we will be taking part in Craft Cafe at the Northern Lawn Tennis Club on Palatine Road (corner with Lapwing Lane). Entrance to the Craft Fair is £1 and it opens from 10 am until 4 pm. As this is going to be our first ever craft stall, we have a lot to learn and plenty to prepare. With the help and advice of friends - and the loan of quite a few items - we will be all set for next Sunday! I really hope you can get along to Craft Cafe - and please tell all your friends too!
Finally, weather permitting, we will also have work on display on the same Sunday afternoon from 1pm until 5pm, as part of Art on the Railings in Fletcher Moss Park, close to Didsbury Arts Festival's Creative Space - near the Cafe and Botanical Gardens.The full DAF 2011 programme is out now at www.didsburyartsfestival.org
