Last Week: Alison Carmichael!

We had a fantastic night last Thursday at Coley Porter Bell!

We had a great turnout and raised an incredible amount for Alison's chosen charity, Action for Children. With the donations from the night, including sales from Alison's beautiful prints, cards and gift tags we raised a staggering £1600!! We never raised so much and it will make such a difference to the charity, so thank you to everyone who donated. 

Quick thank you to.... Gary at a New Star in the Sky for the screen prints, GF Smith for supplying the paper, CPB for hosting and supplying drinks!

We also announced that Not Inhouse will be changing its name to Playdesk! The blog will be changing soon along with our twitter, facebook and email so please email if you'd like to be kept upto date on events.

Shop new open!!

You can now purchase our A3 screenprints from past talks by clicking on the "Buy Prints" option over there, on the right hand side of the screen. Or just click here! Each design was printed in a run of 50 by A New Star in the Sky, signed and numbered by the artist and given out on the night of each talk. However, Alan Kitching hand printed his own, be quick to buy those as there's only a couple left!

All proceeds of the sales (after fees and P&P) will go to charity.

Last Thursday....

We had a fantastic night last week when Si Scott dropped by to talk about his wonderful work! We had a packed house (apologies to those who had to squeeze in!) and raised just under £500 for Si's chosen charity, the RSPCA. So a big thank you to everyone who contributed.

Thank you again to everyone involved. A New Star in the Sky for printing the posters, GF Smith for supplying the paper, Brandhouse for providing the space and bevvies :) Most of all a big thank you to Si for coming down and designing the beautiful "W" poster.

We're having a little rest for a couple of months but keep posted for updates or email Keely to get onto our mailing list for future news and events. We're also opening a shop! We'll be selling all prints of the talks so far, so you collect the set!

Thank you!


Thank you to everyone that made it to the talk last Thursday! We had a fantastic evening, Marion gave a very inspiring talk. I'm sure most people leaving on Thursday had an urge to go home and start finger painting again! We raised a total of £363 for Marion's chosen charity, Peace of Mind. Her publisher, Lawrence King, is also contributing a £1 from each book sold on the night which , I think, nudges the total above £400 so thank you everyone!!

Marion's print is ready for tonight




A New Star in the Sky have just finished Marion's print ready for the talk this evening! Using a special metallic, pearlescent grey concoction for the pencil lines is a lovely touch. The prints will be exclusively available to the guests tonight but if you're interested in buying one we hope to have a shop up and running soon. Again all proceeds of the sales will go to charity.

Read all about it!

Hopefully you can click on the image to read it full size but we're really chuffed that a little bit appeared in The Evening Standard about Not Inhouse this week! The other staff incentives sound brilliant too, we're all up for Summer working hours here!

NEXT TALK: David Pearson!!

We are delighted to announce David Pearson is our next speaker at Not Inhouse! I'm sure his work appears on many book shelves as a purchase for the lovely covers rather than the content! David will be coming in on the 22nd March 2012 to talk about his beautiful work.

Unfortunately our guest list is full already (!!) but if you'd like to be added to the reserve list please email keely@notinhouse.com.

Check out his work here

COMING SOON: Si Scott (June 2012)

We've been busy bees here at Not Inhouse HQ. We have a little line up booked for early summer so we thought rather than sitting here getting all excited we'd share the excitement with everyone! We won't be opening the guest lists until closer to the time (calm yourselves!) but if you want to be added to the guest list please drop an email to keely@notinhouse.com.
