Christmas Fayre 8th December!

I will have a table at the Kingshill House Christmas Craft Fair in Dursley on Sunday 8th December!  Paintings, and prints, framed and unframed with a few pieces of new printmaking pieces print to boot!
 
“The table plan is done, the makers are busy creating lots of lovely things and the Cam Jammers Ukelele Group have spent weeks practicing their best Carols for us!
 
All we need now is you! Come along between 11am and 3pm on Sunday 8th December and shop until your heart is content.
 
With more than 30 stalls, there’s plenty to tempt you and if you’re a hands on kind of person, we’ll have a (free) ‘mini makes’ station set up with our craft club tutor, Jackie Ginley, teaching you the art of Danish paper folding; no need to book.
 
Lastly, we haven’t forgotten your taste buds; Bacon rolls, delicious homemade soup and scrumptious cakes, hot drinks and mulled wine are all on the menu in the Oldridge Bar!
 
Kingshill House Team”

Curlew over Lower Burnmouth

My original inspiration for trying Collagraphy was coming across an image on a greetings card by Northumberland artist Carol Nunan and wondering how she produced such evocative work.

After a lot of research and several youtube videos later this image is one of my first ever collagraphs produced by hand.  Needless to say this is not the only one as it takes several if not many goes to get a consistent and successful result.  The beginning of a new creative journey!
