Art & Craft shows

…what can you see and do?

With Gadsby’s and Uni-Ball working together for 5 exhibitions this year you can get to see, and do, plenty on the stand. For those who have been going to Art & Hobbycraft shows for some time seeing the Gadsby stand won’t be new. But for the upcoming shows there is an exciting extra element to the stand.

Ella Johnston*, an artist and illustrator, who works with Uni-Ball will be on the Gadsby / Uniball stand to run workshops. She will be on the stand to answer any questions people have about Uni-ball products in relation to art and craft; this includes Signo Pens, Uni-pin and Posca. Also she will trouble shoot any crafty queries with the pens and share her expertise, providing helpful hints, advice and insider tips and tricks.

Ella will help visitors to the stand to see what the pens are capable of, how they can be used as a creative solution for a wealth of projects and how a practising artist and illustrator puts them to use. Also Ella will be showing people how to draw certain motifs on request.

AS well as talking through the product range, Ella will be demonstrating how POSCA works on glass and running ‘make and take’ workshops on decorating a glass votive. As well as the ‘make and take’ project, there will also be a “DIY craft kit” where customers can buy the pens we have worked with plus additional Signo and Pin pens. This pack will also include project instructions for POSCA, Signo and Pin plus exclusive templates so they can recreate these projects at home and create additional makes.

*Ella Johnston is an artist and illustrator with a background in and passion for arts and crafts. As well as being an accomplished exhibiting artist Ella is an erstwhile craft magazine editor, editing titles such as Let’s Get Crafting, PaperCrafter and Homemaker. Her illustrations have featured in Boots Health & Beauty Magazine, Guardian Labs for Brittany Ferries and Jamie Cullum’s The Eighty Eight.
