BABE April 30th and May 1st

Hi everyone!

Katie and me are both going to BABE to sell ABC@BIAD work, but we can't do it on our own! We need your help, give us your printy stuff!! Obviously it needs to be good quality and well packaged and presented. If you'd like us to sell your bits and bobs then please bring your work into school. You can leave it in the plan chest draw marked "BABE" or in the one marked "Chloe Cook" if there's room, or just give it to someone who is involved. Chiu will be looking at all the work before we go so if your work is a bit below the standard of everything else we're taking then I'm afraid it may not go with us. Come and see someone in the print room if you need help or advice, we're all friendly like kittens! =^.^=

Also, Katie and I don't wanna be alone so if you'd like to man the stall with us it'd be a great experience for you and would stop us going insane! I'm going on the Saturday and Katie is going on the Sunday, so let one of us know if you'd like to join and we can all book trains and stuff together. Or email me at:

If you're in Print Club then I'll have already told you this, but YOU SHOULD COME and see how printmaking fits into a contemporary market. We're going to be interviewing people whos work is interesting and things like that too, so it'd be a good way to learn.

Sorry about such a long post!

Leeds Artist Book Fair

ABC@BIAD went up to Leeds to sell our wares at what was a really good Artist Book Fair. We all really enjoyed the weekend and got to meet some very talented and friendly people. We also got some great positive feedback on our work which was really important to us all. A book fair is a really good way to test your work on your market audience- you can see if the people you think will like your work actually do like it, and you can also find out what needs improving and what is already good. There was so much lovely work there that I probably bought nearly as much as I sold, but who needs a student loan!!

The book fair was two rooms within Parkinson Court at the University of Leeds, which is a beautiful building. It was really roomy but still really packed. Leeds clearly is a good place for a handmade and artist book scene.

Tris and our table

Despite our best efforts at getting people to give us their work or bring it to the fair themselves our table ended up quite roomy. So next time PLEASE bring your work guys, we need more to sell!!
