The Mr.PS studio will be open to visitors on Saturday 11 July, 12-6pm. Opening as part of the Manifest Arts Festival, Studio Central will be holding its first ever Open Studios, and the lovely shop downstairs, Pencil Me In, will of course be open too!
Come along and see a wide range of artists' and designers' work. And of course there'll be a chance to pick up a treat from the Mr.PS sale table, so bring your pocket money. I'll have screenprints, cards, tea towels, mugs and all the usual ware available to purchase and take away.

The studio is a short walk from Manchester city centre, just over the River Irwell from Spinningfields, and is situated on Chapel Street, just by Salford Central Station. The Salford Arms, and the Kings Arms on Bloom street are a mere moments walk away.
Historical fact fans: Formerly the building was the The Brown Bull pub, there’s a famous picture of footballer George Best pouring champagne into a tower of glasses that was taken here, in its days as the Man U winger’s favourite boozer.
Stop press! The Aster print fabric I designed, which was originally used for coin purses, has now graduated to the wider-sized pencil cases. Woo!
Available in neon pink, (of course) and also red. They measure 21 x 10cm and have a gold-coloured chunky metal zip. Handmade from screenprinted heavyweight cotton canvas in the Mr.PS studio, available in my online shop now.
In other exciting pencil case news (if you're into that sort of thing), Number Crunch is now available in apple green, so freshen up your stationery supplies for Spring!
Less than a month til Fathers Day in the UK (June 21) so here I am showing you this year's hand screenprinted Father's Day greeting card offering from Mr.PS
The Best Ever Dad card spells it out in black and white, quite literally! Screenprinted with opaque white ink on an ebony black card, this is a typographic treat of lettering, complete with jazzy stars.
As with the rest of my new range of greeting cards, it comes with a brown kraft envelope, packed in a cellophane sleeve.
