Santa’s favourite independent print + illustration fest. Get a sleighload of colour + festive fun from top illustrators and print pros.

The almost-world famous CMYK is back for its first-ever Christmas Special.

You can expect all the family-friendly workshops and masterclasses that you are used to, as well as an indoor market hall jam-packed full of 70 amazing artists selling That Perfect Christmas Present You Didn’t Know You Would Ever Find.

The one-day event will have plenty of festive refreshments on-site, and some amazing events through the day with big names from the world of illustration and print.

Taking place just five minutes from the centre of Hereford on the historic Hereford College of Arts campus on College Road, the event is totally free.

If you or your family love colour and characters and things that make you laugh, you are going to have a great day. You will likely leave with at least one of the most personal presents you will ever find.

There are two great workshops that you will need to sign up as they have limited capacity. The brilliant Pencil Pot Club are running a session from 1.30pm – 2.30pm, and then at 3.30pm the King of Rubber Stamping, Stephen Fowler, will be running a one-off, one-hour zine-making workshop.

Both sessions are available to all ages and experience. Click the links for more info, and to book on.
