Mel Kew’s exhibition at Bath Artists’ studios 14th – 16th March 2014 was fantastic, utilising found waste objects she created stunning installation pieces which were full of colour, texture and pattern. I was happy to donate a variety of metal objects and acrylic sheets I was getting rid of after my studio clear out and Mel put them to excellent use!
Mel is a ceramicist who graduated from Bath Spa University, definitely one to watch….
I decided to add a new workshop to the diary this year allowing participants to print their own Christmas cards, paper and tags. I had a great time working with a group of lovely girls who got stuck in and enjoyed the printing!
“Thank you so much for all your help at the screen printing workshop yesterday, it was so much fun making my own Christmas cards, tags and wrapping paper! I would highly recommend this workshop to anyone, with or without previous experience.”
I was lucky enough to be asked onto the Steve Yabsley lunch time show recently to chat about what I do and how I got to where I am now, including living in Japan.

Here are some photos from Monday’s book making course there was lots of colour and letters galore…..

I recently worked at Ledbury Primary School on a great Creative Partnerships project entitled ’Kids in Charge’.
Working with myself and two other artists (Caroline Everett and David Booth http://www.symbiotics.co.uk/) over four days to make a range of products to be sold at the Ledbury Poetry Festival’s craft Market http://www.poetry-festival.com/index.html, all proceeds to go to two local charities.
With me they made funky Japanese stab bound books, beautiful marbelled compact mirrors and lovely cards and book marks.
The craft fair was a great success, they had sold out by 3 o’clock and made £340 for their chosen charities.
