Meanwhile, the first York River Art Market of the 2018 summer season will be held at Dame Judi Dench Walk tomorrow (July 7) from 10am to 6pm to coincide with Bloom!. Aptly, the focus of this riverside arts and design market will be on work with strong floral themes.

* The Japanese Print Shop, in High Petergate, is holding its Bloom! show, Japan: The Hand-Printed Flower, until July 14. This rare exhibition of original 19th century Japanese woodblock prints highlights the delicate form and beauty of flowers, focusing on the work of Imao Keinen and his famous series Four Seasons.

* For Bloom!, the Green PICA! display by PICA Studios artists, in Grape Lane, explores plant life in an interdisciplinary window installation throughout the four-day festival.

* Lesia Davidson's Bloom! show, Flowers In The Woods, features vibrant paintings of flowers and woodlands at Osbornes@68, the Gillygate cafe with a hidden garden, until July 31.

* York St John University sculpture students are presenting a series of "creative interventions" in Rowntree Park, based on the horticultural history of York.

* Artist Jessica Gray will hold a Floral Embellished Textile Hoops workshop at Olive's Nest, Scarcroft Road, York, tomorrow (July 7), when you can create your own floral-inspired textile artwork using contemporary embroidery techniques.
