Exciting news: I'll be in Wales September 2nd and 3rd teaching a one day workshop.

The gist of it is this:
Wabi sabi - finding beauty in the imperfection.
Being inspired by our surroundings we will collect, edit, print & create.
"Wabi-sabi is about the minor and the hidden, the tentative and the ephemeral.
Consequently to experience wabi-sabi means you have to slow down, be patient and look very closely."
- Leonard Koren
Let's discover new ways of seeing, to create pieces that resonate with where we are.
We will begin by gathering our inspiration literally, to create a nature table.
We will discuss the process of editing our source material so as to find a starting point.
Using Gelli plates we will create mono prints inspired by our findings, we will then use these prints to create various artworks, including a pocket size artist book.
Held at Springfield Arts, UK, I'm so looking forward to distilling the landscape
into memorable works of art.. perhaps you can make it?
