Book Arts Fair - Hadleigh, 3 November

On Saturday I'll be showing my inky books and memory balls (but probably not the printed feathers) at the HOFS book art fair, so if you're out Essex way, do drop by! The official info is below.

Hadleigh Old Fire Station is on High Street, Hadleigh, Essex SS7 2PA, and the fair runs from 10am to 5pm. Hadleigh is located on the A13, six miles west of Southend-on-Sea ; map is here. Nearest stations are Benfleet and Leigh on Sea, with frequent buses from Leigh and Southend (I hope so, because I'm planning to get there by train and bus!). Info on the venue is here; info on the fair itself, and the exhibitors, is at  www.thebookartsfair.weebly.com.

The Book Arts Fair at HOFS (Hadleigh Old Fire Station) 

This event brings together 24 diverse artists, all of whom demonstrate a rich and varied response to working with art and the book. Each artist has a unique perspective in understanding this medium. The event will offer the visitor much to think about - from the craft of a traditional hand bound book/journal, to the book as a sculptural object.

The event takes place on Saturday 3 November 2012 at the newly refurbished Hadleigh Old Fire Station, now home to 15 artists' studios and a large exhibition hall.

Entry is free, with parking  available.
The event will offer an opportunity for artists to meet, and form a network within the South East area. Participants will be attending from London, Essex and Suffolk. We are delighted by the interest shown by artists wanting to be part of what promises to be an exciting event.

Please come and join us; we look forward to meeting you!

Wow! I had no idea about this new venue at Hadleigh. My mum used to live at Canvey Island so I passed through Hadleigh every day on my way to school. We havn't been down for over a year now (as Mum is now living in a care home in Grantham near us) so have missed this change in Hadleigh. We are at my stepdaughter's wedding this weekend so we couldn't go anyway but I will be looking Hadleigh Fire Station up when we do go down. I hope you have a great day on Saturday.
