Leicester Print Workshop Demo

Yesterday I was back in the Leicester Print Workshop after a long absence. I especially made the trip in to see Gemma Wright as she was giving a demo on a couple of new screen printing products that I hope to use in some future work.

I also found out that Gemma is leaving the workshop next month to pastures new. It was the ‘Introduction to Screen Printing’ course that was run by Gemma, where I first learnt how to screen print and got hooked, she taught me pretty much everything I know about screen printing! So I would just like to say a big thank you for her advice and help and wish her the very best in her new job! I know she’ll be greatly missed.

Film & Print!

This month saw the culmination of a joint project between members of the Leicester Print Workshop and SevenFive Productions. The project was designed as an opportunity for cross pollination, skills sharing and creative collaboration between filmmakers and printmakers. There was a premier at the Phoenix Cinema in Leicester – an exhibition and screening of work produced by LPW printmakers and local filmmakers working in collaboration.

I was paired with film maker Thomas Tyrrell. We decided to make a promo video of sorts showing my working process from sketching the idea through to final print making. You can see the film here:

It was a full house! Below me and Tom enjoying the free wine!

My first interview!

The very nice people at cool as are currently running an interview of little ‘ol me! I was very honoured to be asked as it’s my first ever interview about my work.

They are also holding a stupidly easy competition to win one of two of my screen prints that I have donated. So if you want to know more about my work or just want a chance to get your hands on a free print, check it out here:

All the fun of the fair!

Today I shared a stand with the Leicester Print Workshop at the Makers Mart Art Fair in Leicester. It was my first art fair experience and a very enjoyable one too. So a big thank you to everyone that came, especially the two people that parted with their hard earned cash and bought one of my screen prints :-)
