Have been on an enamelling course which was great fun. Here is a pic of the glass grinding stage
I have admired some amazingly intricate weaving by my daughter. It was exhibited in an old mill in Stanley, north of Perth, Scotland.
And… The allotment has been temporarily completely tamed. There is even produce growing in the raised beds and fruit bushes and trees in blossom.

Here are some collagraph prints / plates made by my daughter whilst she was home over Xmas.
I am still ‘thinking’ about my Ebb and Flow book. I just can’t make any decisions at the moment!
So the allotment has been progressing instead!

Just treated myself to a new printing press after many years of
thinking about it! A lovely piece of kit that runs like a dream.
Just making up some new collagraph plates to try out in it. Still many layers of PVA to add and lots of drying in between!
Trial print from previously made plates

Went on a great silk collagraph course at Leicester Print Workshop led by Sue Brown. So nice to be taught something rather than doing the teaching!

Was looking for some fluid type for the Ebb & Flow bookmaking brief. Found some on eBay. Can’t wait to start printing!

Well the good weather has meant more allotment work than arty work.
Onto raised bed no.3 now at the plot
On the art front I just purchased some tasty Japanese paints. They are so beautiful. As displacement activity I painted the colour swatch.
