About the Event

Precious Poscards is BACK!

After the heart warming success last year, I am so excited to open the letter box again for your magical minatures to come flying through.

Do you love the 'gift shop feeling' of bringing home a postcard of a beloved artwork? Precious Postcards is about celebrating that accessibility to owning a piece of artwork but with original works on paper.

The collection will be available to buy for a very affordbale price of £30 - £60, so think about creating studies or musings that capture your unique artist’s essence rather than extensively worked pieces.

20% of sales will go to FoodCycle, a brilliant charity a brilliant charity that turns surplus food into three-course meals with kind conversation for people all over the UK.
