Hi Everyone,

Hope everyone had a nice weekend. I was thinking about our next six weeks in the studio and thought that it would be smart to organize it a bit. Because Jane and Lou mentioned demonstrating silkscreening and gum arabic transfers, maybe they can pick specific weeks so that we all know what's up. Doesn anyone else want to give a sort of workshop? I'm interested in using photographs for printmaking, if anyone (like Rhonda?) is willing to teach me!

What do you think?

See you Tuesday!


ps. I will try to make muffins for our last class :)

Shameless plug

A selection of Phil's comix are on display at FACT as part of the current exhibition, Climate For Change, until the end of May.
And will also be available for sale in the FACT shop for the duration.

Message from Emma

Emma asked me to post this on our blog:

I've had a brief chat with Owen at Editions Ltd. of Cook Street. She has exhibition space for you from 9 July for 3 weeks approx. She will do mailout and pv card if you supply the mailing list. Her percentage on sales is reasonable. Four medium frames each. I'm willing to advertise it through the Bluecoat and print studio brochures. Am thinking of calling it The Magnificent Seven. Does this clash with Phil's proposal and what do you all think? Decision by end of Tuesday next week please. X Emma

Mary says: This is great! A wonderful opportunity and I think we should accept. Doesn't need to clash with the Go Pink/Blue exhibition, but we may need to decide whether or not to propose a show at Arena still. 

What are everyone's thoughts?

And we begin

Hello! Just thought it would be nice to start out with a print. Oh, I can't wait to see what everyone posts and it would be great to see the work people are doing outside of the course as well, wouldn't it?
