Art and Craft Fair – Lady Manners School

On the weekend of 14th-15th May, members of Sheffield Printmakers Anthea Stephenson, Jan Beautyman and Katherine Rhodes took part in an Art and Craft Fair at Lady Manners School,
Bakewell.
The event was organised by the school PTA, ably led by Rachel Collier Wilson.  There was a steady flow of visitors and we made some sales.  More importantly we did lots of networking and even managed to recruit Rachel, a trained printmaker, to our group!  We also met Carol Eason, a fellow group member who’d been unknown to those of us based in Sheffield.
It was a fun event, friendly and well-organised. The work on show was of high quality and quite original. Participants had been selected with a view to the fair having an ” up-market feel”. We came away feeling very positive and some of us even made purchases!
We gather there are plans afoot for another event later in year so watch out for news of this.
