The 6th of June will be the opening day of the third Open Studio event at Hampen Factory Arts Centre, nr Cheltenham.
I have been running printmaking courses from Hampen Factory for almost 5 years now and I am really looking forward to the week long Open Studio Exhibition as I am showing with really talented friends.

I am showing a series of new collagraphs and etching inspired by Venice and corvus.
Sharon has developed a set of gorgeously coloured metal hangings.
Carolyn has been experimenting very successfully with mixed media collagraphs.
Caroline is making the most amazing narrative stitched applique; textile with attitude.
Lesley has strong figurative ceramics.
The event will look fabulous and while we are sitting in the studio for the week we will experimenting with viscosity inked plates and running classes so we can be seem in action.


the next one will be a Non Toxic Etching Weekend. September 26th-27th 2009.
The 2 day course will cover etching aluminum with copper sulphate using Gum Arabic Transfer as a photographic style resist. This is the technique I outlined in the Winter 2008 edition of Printmaking Today and I am showing work using this way of working at the
Five at the Factory exhibition on the 6th June
Contact for more details about the course.
