It’s heating up here and we have had a very busy Summer. Our 20:20 Print Exchange is getting a lot of interest and already has over 400 artists from 34 print workshops signed up for it; that’s 10,000 prints we expect to get in here for sorting in November.
We are also building towards The 8th Manchester Artists’ Book Fair in October. We have a lot of prior interest, but we are still in talks with MMU over the use of The Holden Gallery and the dates. We are potentially being fitted in in-between exhibhitions there including a major exchange with Dresden so we are hainv to sit tight and await absolute confirmation. Whgilst the fair itself is not in question the when and the where are yet to be set in stone. We expect it to be in mid-October and hope to know more in a week or so’s time; by mid July.
Our courses are booking up well as usual and we are pleasedc to say that the first 6 courses were fully booked and only a few places remain on courses to come.
There’s lots of irons in firtes for more events and partnerships as we build towards 2014 our 20th anniversary year!
