This weekend sees the start of the Liverpool Irish Festival, which I’ve been very kindly asked to take part in. On saturday the 25th, I will be holding free( that’s right FREE!) drawing workshops for kids and the odd adult in the museum between 1pm and 4pm. All you need to attend is an interest in drawing, and perhaps some heckles to chuck at an already nervous Irish man. You can find more details here.
And if that wasn’t enough, on Sunday the 26th, I’ll be taking part in a print extravaganza fair at the Bluecoat, with the good folk from Inprint. The entire fair will contain prints and artwork for sale, created by a mixture of talent from Ireland and Liverpool, brought together by the people at Inprint(Liverpool) and Offset(Ireland). This is going to be amazing! I’m looking forward to seeing some of the talent there, and I will also be selling such prints as this:
AND!!! If that wasn’t enough to wet your whistle, I can confirm now that the amazing ‘Art of Superstition‘ travelling exhibition will be on display this weekend too.
Created by members of Illustrators Ireland, this show has been on a tour all around Ireland recently, and this is its first trip to the UK. This is one not to miss, I haven’t seen it in the flesh yet, and I’ve got a piece in it, ‘Difunta Correa’. Which, oddily enough, I’ll be selling prints of on the day:
This will be my first trip to Liverpool, so I’m incredibly excited about it, hope to see some of you there!
