We are excited to host our first annual contemporary print fair.
Leicester Print Fair will showcase printmakers from across the UK, with artists coming from as far away as the North East of England and Suffolk.
The free-to-attend event will promote printmaking in its various forms; including relief, letterpress, intaglio, monoprint, screenprinting, bookmaking and lithography. All work, including original prints, textiles, greetings cards, jewellery, unique gifts and more will be for sale, with stalls taking over the whole LPW building.
The variety of established artists who will be displaying their work at the fair will include LPW members and Upper Floor Artists, who make their work at LPW: Hannah Brown, Barry D. Bulsara, Sarah Kirby, Alex Palmer, Peter Rapp and Jay Seabrook; Nottingham artists Chie Hosaka and Nancy Power, Georgia Peskett from Chesterfield and many more. View the full list of artists here.
Visitors will be able to purchase work, meet participating artists and learn more about their work. This will be the perfect opportunity to buy an affordable, original and unique piece of art for your home. Artists will be offering high quality work with prices suitable for everyone’s budget.
As well as fantastic and inspiring printmaking, visitors can enjoy something to drink and eat with PETE on the street. PETER, Leicester and Loughborough’s favourite pizzeria will be bringing a fully functional wood burning oven to LPW in an old shipping container… oh wheels! Perfect if you fancy something different. Really Awesome Coffee will also be offering visitors an extensive menu of gourmet coffees, luxury hot chocolates and other café favourites, chai team lattes, fresh fruit vegetable smoothies, as well as ice coffees, frappes and milkshakes.
