I am keen to show my support within my local community and for national charities. Charities were devastated by the pandemic, losing over £6 billion in revenue in just one year. Run by volunteers, these charities need our support.
My way to help is to offer donations through art giveaways, discounted pieces and a portion of my sales each year.
I support a variety of charities, including RNLI, the Woodland Trust, UNICEF and Trussell Trust (Food Banks).
February - April
Each year, I participate in an Instagram charity donation giveaway, held around the 14 February, but I usually do this February-April. A wonderful way of sharing love and paying forward goodwill. I marble and press print postcards and offer these free of charge to the recipients, trusting that they will pay the artwork donation to their chosen charity.
Initially this was set up by printmaker John Peddar in 2018, to raise money for food banks, this charity giveaway has grown in the printmaking community, with more and more charities benefitting from the generosity of the printmaking and art community on Instagram. It's a privilege to be participating.
The Great Charity Pottery and Print Fair
5-6 March 2022
An online charity auction, with over 300 exceptional potters and printmakers across the UK. I am offering 50% discount on postcard Lino cut prints and auctioning a marbled sheepskin vessel, Origami inspired. All donations will be going to my chosen charities, Woodland Trust and UNICEF.
