Norwich Print Fair

On Saturday I visited the Norwich Print Fair. It was my first time attending the fair and I really enjoyed it! St. Margaret’s Church on St. Benedict’s Street was packed full of brilliant printmaking and because I went on a Saturday most of the printmakers were there.

It is difficult to choose, but some of my highlights included Neil Bousfield’s engravings of the Norfolk coast, Vanessa Lubach’s linocuts of cats and chickens, Elaine Nason’s linocuts and Laura White’s etchings of family photographs.

I am particularly fond of Richard Horne’s Print Vend machine, which has been filled with new prints! The Print Vend machine is full of little boxes containing a random screen print, if you do visit the fair make sure you have a go!

Illustrator and printmaker, Paul Bommer was also at the fair. He had a lovely display of work including screen prints. I chose a print of Norwich Pubs, which I am very pleased with!

Norwich Print Fair continues until Saturday 17th September. Saturday will be another open portfolio day where you get the opportunity to meet the artists and browse their unframed prints as well as the exhibition. I definitely recommend visiting the fair and hope to be back again!

Norwich Print Fair until 17th September 2016, 10am – 5pm St. Margaret’s Church, St. Benedict’s Street, Norwich. Free entry
