Patchings Festival

Although the physical 2020 Patchings Festival cannot take place, the organisers have set up the Virtual Patchings Festival for the same dates of Thursday 9 July (live from 9am) to Sunday 12 July, with all the major artists and exhibitors taking part.

You will be able to ‘walk’ around the Marquees as if inside the festival arena. Within each Marquee you will be greeted by guest and celebrity artists & makers, in some cases being invited into their studios to say hello and receive artists tips. The Art Materials Marquee will have individual companies introducing a range of workshops and demonstrations plus art materials offers (incl Painters Online, Search Press, Daler Rowney, Derwent & UK Coloured Pencil Society).

  • Spend time with individual artists & makers.
  • Video workshops & demonstrations from celebrity & guest artists.
  • Live broadcasts & presentations/interactions with artists.
  • Art Material & show offers.

Finally – next year’s Festival is being planned for 8-11 July 2021.
