 I have started teaching City and Guilds Creative Textiles again @The gallery Dereham on a Monday and Wednesday and this week the sessions are about continuing to make marks.Rubbings from different surfaces and how to translate them onto fabric. Carole a 'Frottage' Artist has a novel and creative ways of creating surface marks from the world around her.

  'Fottage' a technique in art of obtaining textural effects or images by rubbing, lead, chalk or other mediums.

Amazing Artist

This is an amazing video of Ralph Slatton's work. A printmaker with amazing insight and detail. The twist on his work, drawing on common thoughts, legends and stories. Very dark and sinister in places but isn't that life's cruel fate?

Hunger Games

 At the weekend we watched Hunger Games. The Trailer really captures the essence of the film. About survival which has an element of truth and science fiction. Our future? Hope not!
Have you see it?
