This weekend is going to be a busy one for Makerhood. We’ll have a stall at the Urban Art Fair on Josephine Avenue, and we’ll also be running a sketching workshop and handing out publicity flyers at the Lambeth Country Show.
Urban Art is London’s largest annual al fresco art fair, so it’s a good chance for us to spread the word about Makerhood to both makers and buyers. We also hope to be able to show visitors a working version of our website – how exciting!
As part of our stall, we’ll have six members of Makerhood exhibiting (and hopefully selling!) some of their work.
Elena Blanco is a Spanish artist and illustrator living in Herne Hill. She studied architecture in Barcelona and is inspired by great Catalan artists such as architect Antoni Gaudi and designer Javier Mariscal, as well as 19th-century Japanese prints. She will be selling limited edition digital prints.
Morgan Tipping is inspired by journeys that she has taken in the UK and Europe and from living in India. Her paintings are on ceramic, paper and board – vast landscapes, misty horizons and haunting faces. Since 2010 she’s been painting crowds: crowds of pilgrims in India and crowds wading through flooded streets in Bangladesh, as well as images of post-war rationing of the 1950s in Britain.
Chris Patton is a graphic designer and photographer, who will be selling greeting cards, notebooks and labels. His love of pattern and vivid colour results in products that are contemporary, striking, diverse and quirky.
Emily Wilkinson is an illustrator, artist and mapper. A professional image-maker and a hobbyist maker of tactile objects, she is inspired by many interests, including ecology, fiction, psychology, poetry, food, learning, language, education, femininity and gender, and communities.
Ray Stanbrook is an experienced graphic designer from south London. He’ll be selling a range of graphic prints and screen prints – all inspired by Brockwell Park.
Gillian Arnold is an artist based in south-east London. She is originally from Belfast, and has a masters degree in textiles from Chelsea College of Art. Gillian prints her own fabric for wall art, fashion and furnishing accessories, as well as working on private commissions.
Urban Art Fair is open 10am to 6pm on both Saturday and Sunday 16 and 17 July, on Josephine Avenue, SW2. It’s just around the corner from Brockwell Park, so you can also visit the Lambeth Country Show. So come and meet us and some of our makers!
