The leaves are falling, the nights are drawing in.... it's that time when I start thinking about fairs and markets...
Coming up this October, I'll be taking part in the Manchester Print Festival, which will be held over the weekend of Saturday 17 & Sunday 18 October, at the People's History Museum in Manchester. The Mr.PS stall will be set up on both days, so come and say hello! More info on Facebook.
Looking ahead to, dare I say it, Christmas, we've been accepted to take part in the "Museum of the Year" Whitworth Gallery's Saturday Supplement: MCR Craft Mafia Handmade Christmas. On Saturday 5 December.More info here.
The Mr.PS studio will be open to visitors on Saturday 11 July, 12-6pm. Opening as part of the Manifest Arts Festival, Studio Central will be holding its first ever Open Studios, and the lovely shop downstairs, Pencil Me In, will of course be open too!
Come along and see a wide range of artists' and designers' work. And of course there'll be a chance to pick up a treat from the Mr.PS sale table, so bring your pocket money. I'll have screenprints, cards, tea towels, mugs and all the usual ware available to purchase and take away.

The studio is a short walk from Manchester city centre, just over the River Irwell from Spinningfields, and is situated on Chapel Street, just by Salford Central Station. The Salford Arms, and the Kings Arms on Bloom street are a mere moments walk away.
Historical fact fans: Formerly the building was the The Brown Bull pub, there’s a famous picture of footballer George Best pouring champagne into a tower of glasses that was taken here, in its days as the Man U winger’s favourite boozer.
