We are super excited for our next event: The Cotton On MCR: Art All-Dayer! Saturday 28th March, at Project B, 8 Albion Street, Manchester, 11am – 6pm (bar and food open till late).
There is no other event like it! We are combining the best of Manchester’s art scene into one amazing all-dayer – featuring a huge affordable art fair, workshops, a pop-up exhibition and more! Brought to you by the best of Manchester’s creatives. This all-day event is the first of its kind, and it’s free to attend!
Here’s a little video of our last event to give you a taster of what’s to come.
100% of the feedback we got from this event said they’d recommend future events to a friend! That’s mint, however, at this event they’ll be so much more!
The huge affordable art fair will feature over 40 stalls from paintings to prints, pottery to photography! We only feature the work of creatives living and/or working in the Greater Manchester region, making sure we promote the best, local talent this incredible city has to offer. Apply for a stall here.
[In my best Game Show host voice] Plus there’s more! We will be hosting a pop-up art exhibition too! This is the first ever Cotton On MCR art exhibition! Again, we will be showing some incredible work from Manchester artists and the exhibition is open to anyone. Whether you are a student, or an established artist, we want to hear from you! It is free to apply. Find out more about the exhibition here and good luck!
Feel free to apply for both the fair and exhibition! There is only one exhibition spot available.
Alongside all that, you can take part in one of our fantastic workshops! Our friends over at Art MCR will be hosting two workshops throughout the day. Come and learn a new skill and stretch your artistic wings! You can take part in an acrylic painting workshop where you get to explore techniques of paintings. Or try your hand at marbling! Here you’ll learn the techniques to create you own marble effect and you can decorate a A5 sketchbook which will be free to you one the day. Both workshops run for 45mins each and you can purchase a ticket here.
If you can believe it, there’s still more to add! Come to our Art All-Dayer and enter our charity tombola! Everyone’s a winner! We will be raising money for the fantastic charity, The Booth Centre. ‘The Booth Centre is a day centre that offers advice, activities and support to homeless people in Manchester.’ You can win anything from art supplies to stationary, to prints and paintings! All the money raised goes to a great cause. We are now taking donations of any art-related prizes, from pencils, books, prints, workshop tickets and more! Please do get in touch if you are able to donate!
Put all this Manchester, arty, goodness in one big pot, in an awesome location, with craft beers, wines, cocktails, music, and food vans, and you have got yourself a pretty awesome all-day art event!
