In my previous blog post I told you about taking in day for this years Holmfirth Artweek and how I would be taking part in the artist demonstrations again for my 5th year, helping to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support.
If you’d like to find out more about Holmfirth Artweek you can do so in that blog post.
It was my 5th year exhibiting in the main exhibition at the Civic Hall and I was hoping that this year would be the year that I finally sell one pof my 3D acrylic paintings there. However it was not to be, and I didn’t even sell one card in the market on the 3rd floor either.
The good news is that I did manage to sell a couple of my cards and kits on the Friday I was there doing my demonstration and I did even better on the Saturday, so I was able to give £20 as my 20% commission on the cards and kits I sold then, which was a really nice feeling.
(I’ll show you what I made while I was there in a seperate blog post so you can see the whole process, read that here)
As Holmfirth Artweek is run entirely by volunteers I want to say a big thank you to them all for doing a such a good job at running things and a massive thank you to everyone who came along and helped us raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support. I look forward to finding out what the final total is once they have added everything up.
And finally the biggest thank you to every single one of you that bought just a card or kit from me, your support really means the world and makes me so happy.
If you weren’t able to make it my cards and kits are available to buy from my etsy shop too.
Till next time.
