Upcoming Exhibitions: TOYS

It's set to be a great month for shows, and we're genuinely excited about this one (not least because all sorts of intriguing parcels keep turning up at the studio).  Drawn in Bristol member Jayde Perkin, and studio member David McMillan have teamed up with their good friend Ed Cheverton (founder of indie publisher Jazz Dad Books), to present TOYS, an interactive exhibition of all things PLAYFUL and FUN.

The show brings together thirty contemporary illustrators with an aptitude for unique 3D work.  Expect toys, puzzles, costumes, games, models, contraptions and the unexpected.

The opening night takes place on Wednesday 12 November at 7pm at 11 Christmas Steps, a suitably enchanting venue for what looks to be an ambitious curiosity shop brimming with childish delights.  You can find out more by visiting the Facebook event page here.

All work will be for sale for the duration of the exhibition, with all profits and donations going towards the great work that The Wallace & Gromit Grand Appeal do for the Bristol Children’s Hospital.

The dynamic trio have secured some brilliant sponsors for the exhibition, including Anorak magazine, Wrap magazine, Arbor Ales and the Children's Scrapstore, who are all proud and excited to be on board.

Anorak, Jazz Dad Books and Children's Scrapstore will be hosting a day of fun children's workshops for little ones to get involved with on Saturday 15 November.  Choose between getting to create your own silly and amazing toys or your own jazzy, colourful instruments with support from exhibiting artists.  All kids will get to take home their creations as well as a special Anorak goodie bag, with a copy of the magazine, colouring book and other treats!
Book your place here.

We can't wait!  Follow TOYS on Twitter for updates, sneaky peaks and exhibition news.
