What’s not to like about lichen?

In the Cotswolds lichen seems to be a bit difficult to find, plenty of moss but no obvious lichen, until you find it on your door step in a little packet sent from a kind friend in Scotland where it is in abundance.

I have to get a plan together quickly before it deteriorates!

Merry Christmas with #Collagraph Baubles

Planetary Christmas Card created with collagraphy printmaking by artist Diane Young at Stroud

These are handpressed cutouts with textures added and using different coloured inks including the lovely gold!  As I do not have a press these have been put together in photoshop taking up their correct positions in the universe.   It would probably be a good idea for me to make some more Christmassy prints for next year right now as my Christmas creativity never gets started in time for the current year.

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!
