Manchester Stationery Show includes a series of hands-on Creative Stationery workshops, which has been sponsored by Craft Focus magazine and led by editor Julie Bonnar. “I’m looking forward to working along side show organisers Ocean Media. We’ve devised a programme of simple hands-on workshops that retailers can easily run and adapt for their own store. This will help to engage with customers, and encourage them to try and buy stationery products. The workshops will be running each day between 11am and 4pm daily so do come along to one of the session and learn a new skill and get creative with stationery,” says Julie Bonnar.

To book in advance get in contact with Vanessa Fortnum here: or if there’s space come along and join in on the day.
