Cotton On MCR are bringing us the spring edition of the much-loved Art All Dayer event, set to return to Halle St Peter’s on Saturday 19th March.

The event will feature 65 Manchester-based artists, selling their arts, crafts, jewellery, ceramics and more.

Not only does this event offer affordable artwork for everyone to enjoy, but there will also be workshops taking place throughout the day. Available to attend at an additional fee, classes include oil painting, macrame, and a botanical themed ‘how to draw’.

For Spring, the event is extra special, as the exhibition is focused on showcasing upcoming talent. Some of our very own Manchester Metropolitan University’s art students will be taking part in a group exhibition, displaying their artwork to a wider audience.

Domino Panton-Oakley, founder of Cotton on MCR said: “I absolutely love working on the Art All Dayer because not only do I get to meet all of these Greater Manchester artists and see them selling their work, I get to go round and see how pleased they are with the response they are getting.

“I am so excited to do the exhibition with the students, each event we do we change what the exhibition element is, this is the first one with the students and it makes me so happy that we get to give them the chance to have that platform.”

Art All Dayer: Spring Edition will be held on Saturday 19th March, 11 am – 6 pm. Hallé St Peter’s, 40 Blossom St, Ancoats, Manchester M4 6BF

£1 Entry on the door. More information can be found on Cotton on MCR
