Saturday 14th July: Create Together, St Albans Museum and Gallery

Create Together, St Albans

Enjoying working on a collaborative project with groups of visitors at St Alban's Museum and Gallery.  Inspired by a wonderful installation by Susie MacMurray we are creating elements for a large scale piece using velvets, silks, sticks, bark and herbs.
Here are some pics of our work in progress:




And here is a detail of some of Susie MacMurray's work at St Albans Museum and Gallery; this is made from silk velvet and wire:

Delighted to be part of the Let Us Leap festival in Hertford, inspired the painter Alan Davie:

Join us for a day of socialising and art making on the glorious lawn of Hertford Castle for our Draw Jam where anyone can come along to draw and hang out. Our two resident artists, Jane Glynn and Michael Wright will be on hand, loaded with materials from pencils to Chinese brushes, to guide jammers on their journey into spontaneous drawing from the imagination and to facilitate a series of gigantic collaborative drawings to be displayed in Hertford Library.

Lovely session at St Andrew's School in Hitchin last week.  We were exploring winter weather and thinking about winter clothes - very surprisingly it snowed for us.  Here are some pictures taken by the school showing some of the clothes the children designed - we were trying to come up with clothes that were warm enough for winter that also celebrated the beautiful winter colours that we could see outside.

concertina book reminder

Been enjoying working in some schools recently.  This video about making a simple concertina book with a snug cover and spine is for teachers who have attended my CPD sessions on cross curricula bookmaking - it's not designed as a tutorial - more a reminder of what people already know! Hope it's useful.
