Well, SPF2019 has happened, and it was a great success! Visitor numbers were fantastic, we had an amazing selection of print work, fascinating demonstrations, plus very nice food and drink from the St Mary's crew!

Well done to Kathryn Desforges for winning the 'Printmakers Printmaker' prize, as voted for by all the printmakers taking part in the event. The prize is a £50 voucher to use with Hawthorn Print.

Thanks for coming along if you made it, and for supporting print!

Thanks also to Hawthorn Print, Folksy and Awesome Merch for supporting us too (the free totes went down very well), and St Mary's for being brilliant hosts.

We haven't yet done the draw for the print raffle yet, but if you are a winner we will contact you in the next couple of weeks. The best of luck!

If you'd like to see some photos from the event, you can go to our Facebook gallery:

We will be publishing the date for SPF2020 in April 2020, so keep an eye out. We will be putting out our call for applications at the end of June.

Sheffield Print Fair 2019 - Call for artists!

We are proud to launch the 7th annual 'Sheffield Print Fair', which will take place on Saturday 9th November 2019, at St Mary's Church & Community Centre, Bramall Lane, Sheffield.

The event will run from 10am until 4pm, and will feature printmaker stalls as well as print demonstrations and kids print workshops throughout the day. This year, we will also be introducing a print raffle too! The event is a fundraiser for St Mary's and their projects helping homeless people and refugees.

We are being generously supported by online craft-selling hosts Folksy, and Hawthorn Printmaker Supplies, who will be at the fair with their presses and other printmaking goodies. We are also being newly supported by the amazing print superstars Awesome Merchandise!

We are offering 44 stalls at the event for artists/printmakers. We are now looking for applicants for the event, printmakers from Sheffield and beyond; woodcut, mezzotint, linocut, screen-print, wood-engravings, digital prints, monoprints and more! We are also for people who are interested in doing a demonstration of their print technique (to whom we will offer a free table).

Please note - We can't accept prints that are simply reproductions/scans of artworks created in other media.

The application deadline is 2nd September 2019, and we will inform all applicants of the result by 9th September 2019.

Stalls are £65 each (a 6ftx2ft table), or £32.50 for a half-table. There is space behind each table for a display board if you wanted to bring one, and some room by the side for small print browsers.
