Opportunities
New Listings!
New listings are what we have found this week and will be dropped into upcoming deadlines after one week

It's been a good few week's since the last website update. I've been working on contact lists to expand the website and newsletter to market UK workshops, open studios, exhibitions and artist talks. Content for these pages will be added over the coming weeks.

If I get good response form this I'll expand to other countries.

All opportunities this week are new below
