See you next time!

Phew! What a weekend!

We thought you might like to see some snaps from the Winter Arts Market – there are lots more to follow, but in the meantime we’d just like to say a big thank you to:

– the very talented artists, designers and makers who exhibited and sold their work

– the thousands of people that came along to enjoy and support creatives from across the region.

– the brilliant people behind the scenes who make St George’s Hall a truly magnificent venue

– the impressive mix of performing artists who moved and delighted audiences in the Crown Court Room programmed by the marvelous Mellowtone

– KECS Creative for the children’s magical antler workshop

– the roaming historical characters of Lormac Productions

– our tremendous helper Anna Cahill!

–  and all of our very supportive colleagues, friends and families.

Join us next year for the Winter Arts Market – 7 & 8 December 2013.

Take a page out of Lily’s book(s)…

Red Clockwork Steampunk Sketchbook

Red Clockwork Steampunk Sketchbook

Lily Mitchell of Shosetsu makes hand bound books using a variety of traditional techniques. She endeavors to make every component of the book from scratch from dyeing leather to marbling end-pages. I also use a number of quirky decorations including semi precious stones, metals and, at one point, clock parts.

If you’re lucky you might even catch her doing demonstrations at the Winter Arts Market about the different aspects of book art and bookbinding, and the process of making a notebook.

Here’s a nice snippet of his artist statement: “My influences come from everything I have heard, seen and experienced. When picking a subject to draw/paint about I take a different approach. I pick a philosophy, a theory, a thought, a dream etc…I question it, dissect it, and attach it back together, then show it in the simplest way I can”

Matthew is one of the artists at Red Wire Studios (at Carlisle Building, 69 Victoria Street, Liverpool), you can learn more at:  www.redwireredwire.com
