Rye Meadows Update

The weather and a flurry of commissions has kept me away from Rye Meadows in the last few weeks but activity is increasing on site. This week the volunteers began hedge planting and I made two new concertina sketchbooks to document their work. I look forward to sharing more of my artwork as we move into spring.

The winter colour palette is very muted and subtle but beautiful none-the-less.

My two new homemade sketchbooks and a sketch from my photographs of the fence building back in December.

Rubber Stamping

We were only 4, because of the snow, but Saturday's rubber stamping workshop was a huge success. I invited friends to be my guinea pigs so I could test timings and smooth out technical details. The results were great.
Peter made his own logo stamps and printed them on a book bag, while Lisa and Dorothy created wonderful designs which we printed on kraft paper greetings cards.

I'll be running the smoothed-out version of the same workshop during Surrey Artist's Open Studios in June, so check back here for details in a month or two. More workshops are planned for the summer, too, including Cyanotype Printing on Fabric and Making Your Own Folding Hardcover Sketchbook.
Thank you Lisa Boyce for the photographs.
