There are two Manchester Print Fairs taking place this winter – the first at The Whitworth, the second at Central Library, and both offer a chance to connect with homegrown talent and artists further afield. Expect hand-crafted, unique finds and one-offs creations served up by over 60 makers. From prints, to totes, accessories and textiles…this a perfect opportunity to start thinking about Christmas presents, or just simply treat yourself. Alongside the buying opportunities, there are a range of (mostly) free workshops: learn how to letterpress, have a go at screen printing, create origami, or even get a three minute portrait from Fred Aldous. Both fairs are free and fun for all the family.
Sat 20 – Sun 21 Oct, The Whitworth, Oxford Road, Manchester, England, M13 0JN & Sat 24 Nov, Central Library, St Peter’s Square, Manchester M2 5PD. Tel: 0161 234 1976, 10.30am – 4.15pm, www.manchesterprintfair.co.uk
