Paper Flower Arranging workshop - Yorkshire Sculpture Park

























Just a heads up that I will be running a paper flower arranging workshop at Yorkshire Sculpture Park on the 16th Spetember to coincide with the closing weekend of my solo show 'Of House and Home' - There are just a few tickets left which can be purchase HERE - All materials and lunch will be provided.

We will be using different makrmaking and print techniques to produce colourful collage papers to be used to create your flowers to be arranged in to a screeprinted 'vase' which I will provide to workshop attendees (or you can use your left over scraps to collage your own, like I have here!)

Above, is a quick example of what you can hope to achieve in the workshop.

(Nothing like a last minute/ very long overdue blog post eh!)

An Animal ABC - publishing

Continued from last week...

So it was from my hefty 50x50cm plan for an illustrated and rhyming ABC that my picture book with Pavilion Children's was born. We scanned each of the screen prints for the book, so it would be as true to the original as possible, edited the rhyme a little, added a curious fact for each animal and a little quiz in the back and we has a book! The book is set to be published on the 13th October - watch this space for more information about the book and a launch/signing event.

Here is little and large sitting next to each other on my shelf.
