Craft Coffee Cupcakes - Christmas Fairs!

Craft Coffee and Cupcakes are an exciting new art & craft venture that are coming to Bournemouth this November! They will be at the Pavilion Dance in Bournemouth Gardens on Sunday 11th and 18th of November, and the best in local art, craft and design will be on offer.

The jewellery, clothing, accessories, tasty food, beautiful cards, art and more will be accompanied by a lazy Sunday afternoon feel. The events are being sponsored by local hero’s Jimmy’s Iced Coffee and Lulubelle’s Cakes, who will be providing the 'Coffee and Cupcakes' of the title.

I'll be there on the 18th with a stall full of all my latest original prints and cards, check out my page on the Craft Coffee & Cupcakes website http://craftcoffeecupcakes.co.uk/francesca-whetnall/.

Poole Printmakers Exhibition at Russell-Cotes Art Gallery & Museum

Poole Printmakers next exhibition will be at the beautiful Russell-Cotes Art Gallery and Museum from November 6th until Jan 27th 2013.

After a successful job with the Shaftesbury Arts Centre poster I was asked if I'd like to design the poster for this exhibition too, and I was able to put my latest linocut to good use! It's a 3 block linocut print, on which I've used transparent colours which create additional colours where they overlap. I hope to sort out a blog post with a bit more about how I created the print in the next few weeks.

The exhibition should be another great selection of original etchings, linocuts, collagraphs, monoprints and more from the talented group that are Poole Printmakers. And Russell-Cotes is always a fantastic gallery to visit, so if you've never been there before, this is a great excuse to get down there! It's also free over the winter, so what could be better!
