CLOTHING brand Weird Fish is set to host a ‘meet the artist’ event at its Gunwharf Quays store.
Weird Fish cartoonist and illustrator Richard Skipworth, pictured left, will be in store from Friday, October 28 until Sunday, October 30 from 10am to 4pm to provide airbrush demonstrations on T-shirts and canvases as well as talking about how he brings the brand to life.
There will be a chance to win the artwork that Richard creates on the day.
Weird Fish’s nominated charity, the Royal Society for Protection of Birds, will be at the event to sign up new members and to highlight its collaboration with Weird Fish.
The link-up launched in January 2015 and has involved the development of a range of RSPB inspired T-shirts. A percentage of the profits from the sales goes directly to the RSPB, with Weird Fish raising more than £30,000 for the charity so far.
The RSPB-inspired clothing has included the popular Lord of the Wings and Darth Wader T-shirts as well as the Harrier Potter and the Deathly Sparrows T-shirt.
Shoppers making donations to the RSPB at the event will be able to have a go on the Weird Fish skittle alley for their chance to win prizes.
Managing director John Stockton said: ‘Our “meet the artist” events are proving hugely popular with families and provide a great opportunity to meet one of our artists behind the designs.’
