On Sunday (3Oth June 2019) it was taking in day for Holmfirth Artweek 2019. This meant that all the artists taking part in the exhibition had from 2pm-6pm to bring their work to the Civic Hall where the main exhibition is held. Over the next week the volunteers will be busy putting everything up ready for the exhibition to open on Sunday the 7th of July at 10am.
What is Holmfirth Artweek?
Holmfirth Artweek is a fundraising event for Macmillan cancer support and is one of the UK’s biggest Art exhibitions, featuring over 400 artists with over 2000 pieces of artwork in Holmfirth Civic Hall.
The main exhibition is in Holmfirth Civic Hall across 3 floors, pieces available for sale in the exhibition can be bought at any time but can only be collected and taken away when the exhibition ends on Saturday the 13th July at 5pm. There is a market on the 2nd floor that does have smaller pieces along with cards/prints that are available to buy and take away immediately. There are also artist demonstrations throughout the day on the first floor stage where you can see how the artists make their work and will have pieces available for you to buy directly from them and take away immediately. The artists demonstrating will change each day and throughout the day too.
There are also dozens of fringe venues across the Holmfirth area holding their own events featuring arts and crafts at the same time. When you buy something from Holmfirth Artweek and the fringe venues at least 20% of the price you pay goes to Macmillan Cancer Support as well as supporting the artist.

Artist Purple Faye at Holmfirth Artweek
This will be my 5th year taking part in Holmfirth Artweek and like all the previous years I have 2 of my 3D acrylic paintings in the exhibition, which I took along on Sunday, and I have a selection of smaller original paintings in the market on the 2nd floor along with some of my cards and framed cards.
I’ll also be taking part in the artist demonstrations again this year. I’ll be there all day on Friday 12th July 10am-9pm and all day on Saturday 13th July 10am-5pm too. I’ll be showing you how to make my elephant and lovehearts 3D picture kits which I’ll have with me available for immediate sale along with the rest of my kits, cards and original 3D acrylic paintings.
If you can make it along it’d be great to see you and say hi.
Together we can help raise fund for Macmillan Cancer Support.
All the best.
Till next time.
