Craft Fair – Coffee House at Horse Carrs

Sat 16th July – 10am – 3pm

Shawclough Road, Rochdale

On Saturday I will be selling a range of my Handmade Linocut Prints, Greeting Cards and Giclée Prints alongside other local artists and makers.

This afternoon I’ve been inside, out of the sun, busy mounting a some more of my Handmade Linocut Prints ready for the fair at the weekend.

The coffee shop, which does a very nice range of homemade baking, will be open to provide refreshments for visitors. Having recently had a morning coffee (and scone) at the Coffee House I can recommend it as a lovely venue in one of Rochdale’s forgotten architectural gems.

Horse Carrs was built for Thomas Watson, a silk manufacturer and benefactor of the town of Rochdale. Thomas Watson moved to Rochdale from Garstang and developed a highly successful silk velvet material that was considered even better than the French cloth. The house retains lots of original features and one of the rooms includes artefacts, photos and information about the history of the house and the Watson family. Why not pop in to browse and buy local art, enjoy the house and some refreshment. Come and talk to me about my artwork and prints and the creative workshops I offer.
