Spent two days with Catherine Kleeli this week. Catherine was running a really great workshop at the Regional Print Centre in Gum Arabic Transfer Printing. It’s a process that allows you to print from photocopies in a process not dissimilar to lithography. I went down to Carmarthen and visited Oriel Myrddin (see review on a-n), […]

The Artists Book Collection at MMU in Manchester is fantastic. I spent a wonderful afternoon in there last week just looking at folds!

Mesmeric is my word for today. This bloody wordpress app for ipods keeps losing everything I write. I spent all morning making notes on it and they just disappeared. Visited Ceri Hand Gallery this morning to see Bedwyr Williams exhibition Nimrod. That is very special, like entering an alternative universe. Bedwyr’s work has a rye […]

Car
