It's been nearly a year since my last blog...not just because I hate writing, forget to do it etc but also I've had some IT issues.
Been very busy over the last year so will build up slowly and looking forward to reflecting back on what I've been up to as I am bound to have forgotten a couple of things.
Firstly as it took up most of my summer there was Santander with Plymouth College of Art.
I was honoured to be asked to attend Impact 10 (an international printmaking conference) as part of Allieurs 2 with the college.
Taking the theme of food security/food culture we travelled to Santander to Takuhon (a Japanese dabbing printmaking technique) a tablecloth.
We arrive in Santander.
Our venue for the week.
My own research during the summer had been around the growing 'Food to Go' culture in this country and the waste created by it. Using take away containers as my printing plates I Takuhoned disposable table cloths and napkins.
Takuhon workshops on opening night.
Printing the streets! A little time off put to good use.
An end of conference treat and a trip to the Guggenheim. A sunning building and Richard Serra's work was mind blowing.
