Come and find me at the #IllustrationWinterFair at @illustrationHQ on Saturday 8 December! I'll be selling hand-made prints, cards and badges, joining over 100 other illustrators for London's largest free illustration fair:

Make the most of the day 

We will be offering 2for1 exhibition entry on the day (last entry 5.30pm) when you quote "The House of Illustration Winter Fair" at our front desk. You can see the world’s first exhibition of figurative art by Quentin Blake, as well as illustration from the refugee crisis.

Our Visitor Services Manager, responsible for stocking the House of Illustration shop, shares her top tips for illustrators selling their work. Read the blog.

As previously, a stand consists of:
- one standard 6’ x 2.5’ table
- one chair
- two vertical wooden batons securing ‘washing lines’ from which light weight work can be hung at the rear of the stand.

Indoor Location - The Crossing
The Winter Fair is taking place within the giant enclosed entrance area at the front of the Central St Martins building. We have already successfully used this space to host the 2015 Winter Fair and are delighted to have it again as it offers good light and warmth on a cold and dark winter day.

It’s right next to House of Illustrations and our usual Summer Fair spot under the Handyside Canopy. It is easy to find, nearby the major King’s Cross transport hub and there is good footfall with people visiting nearby Granary Square, Central Saint Martin’s, the flagship Waitrose store and, opening in October 2018, Coal Drops Yard – a new shopping street with shops, cafes, bars and restaurants designed by Heatherwick Studio.

Setup is on Saturday 8 December from 8am, and your stand must be ready in advance of 11am when the event is scheduled to start. We ask also that you stay until the end of the event at 5pm.
