I have recently illustrated and designed the flyer/poster for the brand new Summer Arts Market event! This is a 2 day arts market held at Liverpool’s St. George’s Hall and organised by Open Culture. If it is anything like the Winter Arts Market it will be well worth a visit! Over 100 maker and artist stalls and workshops running all weekend, it’s a crafty extravaganza! I can’t wait!
