A new event celebrating the art of contemporary printmaking is being held at Sunny Banks Mills in Farsley next weekend (April 2-3).
Printed Bound, an artists’ book and print fair, features both contemporary printmaking in all its forms and the fascinating world of artists’ books.
Artists, makers, illustrators, designers and printmakers will be selling their work, which will include screen prints, monoprints, etchings and more from many well-known and loved printmakers, artists and collectives, at affordable prices.
Among those exhibiting are Yorkshire-based Angela Hall, Janis Goodman and Sarah Harris, members of the West Yorkshire Print Workshop and Rushbank Studios.
Printed Bound will take place in the Old Woollen at Sunny Bank Mills, an evocative events space in the oldest building on site.
Arts director Jane Kay said:
“This promises to be an absolutely wonderful weekend. Alongside our new fair, there will be associated workshops, demonstrations and taster sessions taking place around the mill site, including in the Artist Studios in the historic Spinning Mill and Twisting Gallery Studios which will be open to visitors.
“Visitors can expect home-made cakes and tea, with classic refreshments from mill favourites the Mill Kitchen, Grumpys, Saint Jude, Farsley Fire and Smoke and Amity Brew Co. There will also be workshops for children and a trail around the mill complex, which is steeped in history.
The event runs at Sunny Bank Mills on April 2 and 3 from 10.30am–4.30pm. Entry for visitors to the fair will be £2 per person per day on the door and free for children 12 years old and under. Car parking is free.
