Have your say

ARTISTS from around the world have donated more than 100 pieces of original art to raise money for a craft centre.

Making Space, in Bishopstoke Road, Leigh Park, is holding a sale of the postcard-sized pieces at a flat rate of £20 each. Anyone is welcome to buy the artwork – from paintings, to illustrations, photos and textiles – from the venue on Saturday, between 2pm and 4pm.

Lynne Dick, pictured, is the director of Making Space. She said: ‘All pieces are anonymous with the artist being revealed once purchase has been made.

‘You could take home a piece by a high-calibre artist or a year 11 student. But it shouldn’t matter, as you’ll buy it because you love it.’

Entry is £5 on the door, including drinks and nibbles.

After the preview, all unsold pieces will go on sale online.
