Today we are posting live from the It’s all about Art event in Manchester, where we are expecting over a thousand visitors from the artistic community to take advantage of our many live demonstrations and interactive workshops.

Visitors develop their artistic streak
The atmosphere is buzzing with creativity and we have taken some time out to speak with a few visitors and professional artists to find out what they have been experiencing at the show.

SAA Members Mr & Mrs Coates from York  said “It's great to have so much knowledge and artistic resources available under one roof.  The interactive events are brilliant, and the professional artists pay great attention to the attendees.  It's a great place to ask questions and view all of the products.”

Professional Artist Vic Bearcroft adds ‘Its been amazing – the artistic knowledge and ability of everyone here has really helped generate a real infectious enthusiasm amongst today’s visitors. The event certainly has something for everyone - packed full of creativity and fun, ‘It’s all about Art’ has once again proved to be an unmissable opportunity for people to come along and celebrate their own artistic ability’.


Fun, inspiration and learning for all

Over the two day event thousands enjoyed hands on workshops and demonstrations ran by their favorite artists.

Coming up soon…
Meet the SAA at Creative Stitches Hobbycrafts, Westpoint Exeter on the 27-30th September and Art Materials Live on the 8-11th November at the NEC, Birmingham.
