    Glasgow Print Fair

    Jun 2019
    • Glasgow, United Kingdom
    • Freelance
    • In 2019 we organised the inaugural Glasgow Print Fair alongside Maraid Design. We invited over 50 artists and printmakers together for a day of printmaking fun which included a screen-printing workshop. With over 2000 people through the doors we had a storming day. We took Glasgow Print Fair online for 2020, we had 30 artists from across Europe create prints based on the theme of nature. Taking place over the month of July, print fans were able to browse and purchase the works online.
