Manchester Print Fair No 7!

Yaaaay I was able to attend Manchester Print Fair this year In April. A fair with lots of lovely illustrators, makers and printers selling their work.  In addition to the fair was able to have a peep inside Sarah Hardacre ‘s studio where she demonstrated some live screen printing.  For me with no printing experience was lovely to see what its all about!  Here are some pictures from my day!

On my way I Couldn’t resist a quick look at the new graffiti on the walls outside Fred Aldous in the NQ, this one is my favourite of all the coats this wall has seen. “Reality is a cocktail of Fantasy” Micah Purnell

The fair was at MADLAB a lovely event space within the NQ! http://madlab.org.uk/ All the stands were cozily arranged side by side which made viewing very exciting as my eyes wondered from one illustrators goodies to the next!
