The Venue

Wolstenholme Projects is an established collective who run studio and gallery spaces in a Georgian ex-Textiles Warehouse in Wolstenholme Square, Liverpool. We have a variety of unconventional spaces including; rooms, spaces, cupboards and corners. It is intended that the artists' book fair will not follow the usual system of identical tables; after all, we are anything but sleek. We hope each artist will find a spot just right for their work, choose the right piece of furniture - table, shelves, chairs and whatever else may please -and also use wall space/floor, whatever they feel most appropriate.

Performances will also be taking place at the artists' book fair, although there will be a separate area set aside for this, with events throughout both days. We would rather visitors could continue to browse rather than feeling it necessary to stand and watch in solemn silence!
