Workshop at Farnham Maltings

I will be delivering a print workshop on Saturday 27th of October. The workshop is available to 10 - 15 year olds and will introduce students to simple block printing techniques onto textiles and they will be producing their own fantastic prints onto a tote bag which they can keep and and use.

We will be using pigments and binders suitable for fabric so the bag can be continuously used and washed. As well we'll be adding on texture and finer lines with fabric crayons and fabric pens.

Presentation this Saturday!

I'll be doing a presentation about my work this Saturday (15th Oct) @ 3:30pm at the Farnham Maltings about my work, past and future projects. I'll be there among plenty of other fantastic crafts people talking and selling their work. Only £3 entry! Worth a look...

Screen print workshop - Farnham craft month

This is the first year of Farnham Craft month. I chose to teach a screen printing workshop at UCA in the textile department and it turned out to be quite a success. They learnt the basics of screen printing and all had a go at printing on a t-shirt. We had such great feedback from all the participant who joined in on the workshops.

Heres a video of them all in action...

                          

Thanks to everyone involved!

Italy!

I came back from Italy a couple of weeks ago and wanted to share a few lovely photos.

We traveled to the south of Italy to a place called Taranto (which we later found out was one of the most polluted cities in Europe :O )... but that didn't stop us from admiring all the fantastic abandoned buildings...

... and the lovely colours and peeling paint on the rowing boats...




Not to mention the number of beautiful doors on the many derelict buildings...




The colours and textures have inspired me to do some ore sketchbook work :D.
