Bath Artists’ Studios Open Studios 2012

A big thank you to everyone who came to support the studios last weekend, and for braving the rain on Sunday. It was great to welcome people into my new studio for the first time.

Anyone interested in the book binding, book making and screen printing workshops I run from my studio should click here for more information.


The Cath Kidston event I worked at in February was a success, it was a great evening of making, eating cake and shopping; a lovely environment to work in.

This is a photo of the amazing cakes we had at the event, they were lovely!

Using sketchbooks for research workshop

Secondary School book making and research workshop

I really enjoyed working with a group of secondary school students recently (years 7 – 11). The session was a great success, they all produced their own unique books and enjoyed using them for their research project.

They started the day by discussing how sketchbooks can be used for recording research and they investigated examples of different books and techniques I had taken in. They then set about making their own books before going out and about to collect information for possible enquiry/research projects, observing the environment around them, really looking and investigating things which often go unnoticed.

One of the participants gave the following feedback: “It is very interesting and really sets off a firework in your mind enabling you to think in a completely different way, by writing an idea down you can then reflect on it and improve.(The workshop is) well worth it, really gets you thinking!”
