It has been an exciting time for York Makers this week. Helen Young and I were interviewed by Luke Taylor of That’s TV York about our forthcoming Spring Fair and about the thriving arts and crafts scene in our city. We were filmed in the beautiful quadrangle of York St. John University and until I appeared on our local television channel I had no idea how often I use the word huge. The event is on Saturday 21 April at Clements Hall and it will be a wonderful opportunity to find the individual and the different from the curated group of designers that attend. I have illustrated a selection of their work and the first 150 visitors will receive a free postcard. Please do say hello if you are planning to visit. I will be standing in front of a plate full of handmade tags as I have also been busy with my coloured paper and my glue stick this week.
For Spring 2018 I am delighted to have added a range of prints with cheerful characters designed with a smile to give a smile. Each of the six designs can be personalised with your own message for you or for someone special. The prints are mounted and wrapped to make a perfect present and for all Mainland UK deliveries the postage is free. The Smile Prints are now available in the shop and for bespoke illustration enquiries please do get in touch.
