Manchester Print Fair aims to brighten up your lockdown experience by bringing their delightful three minute portrait service online, with all proceeds going directly to local artists. Undeterred by the current situation which has impacted much of the city’s cultural scene, Manchester Print Fair’s homespun portraits offers a fun way to inject some colourful creativity into your lives during self isolation – and it couldn’t be easier to get involved. Simply head to their site to buy a ticket for £5.50 and send over photo – a simple headshot works fine and their team of expert artists are keen for you to include any cats, dogs or beloved pets. Once your photo has been submitted you can sit back, relax and tune into their live-streamed sketching session (due to take place on Saturday 23 May) to see your pen-fuelled portrait materialise right in front of your very eyes before a digital copy is sent to you, post-event. This opportunity isn’t limited to Manchester folks either – it’s open to art-lovers worldwide – and best of all, all profits go direct to the artists, helping keep creativity alive during these difficult times. Head to the Manchester Print Fair website for terms and conditions and to buy your digital ticket.
