Open Up Sheffield 2013

This year I am excited to be involved in Open Up Sheffield. This weekend I am busy getting ready for it. I will be ‘Open‘ over the next two weekends, Sat 4th and 11th, Sun 5th and 12th May.

I will be demonstrating some of the print-making techniques I use and taking bookings for printing classes. Come along for a cuppa and a chat, be great to see you! For now, I’ll get back to my cutting out. Only cut myself once so far…..drying-ducks1cutting-out-duckscut-out-blackbirds

Back in business….well almost!

Good grief! How long did that take? It’s been months since I was last able to get on with any printing due to my mammoth studio overhaul. I was not helped by the fact I picked the most unreliable plasterer in Sheffield who repeatedly cancelled on me until I saw the light and found someone reliable. Anyway, at last the end is in sight, walls and floor are painted, shelves are put up and equipment and materials rearranged in an orderly fashion. I LOVE my new studio. Here are some before and after pictures.

Still a wee bit to do yet but I plan to begin printing images for my new lampshades either tonight or tomorrow…I’ll see how I go. I’ll pop a shot of the whole studio on in a day or so and also of course, a photo of my first lampshade, once it’s finished. I can’t wait!!
