Royal Exchange wood block printing workshop

I had a lovely morning at the Royal Exchange Theatre in Manchester. A group of talented adults came along for a wood block printing workshop…

We started off by making a rubber stamp using japanese wood carving tools…

We then moved on to work with plywood…the results and the atmosphere of the workshop was so experimental and creative. I`m afraid these photos I quickly took don`t do the work justice. I hope to be back at the Royal Exchange again soon it was such an inspiring place to be creative in.

New England..

I`ve just got back from New England and it was just as amazing as I thought it would be….beautiful white churches

the ‘colour’ as Americans would say!

Martha`s Vineyard, Edgartown as seen at the start of Jaws..!

beautiful houses everywhere, but I especially like these ginger bread houses on Martha`s Vineyard..
