walking collecting making

I’m part way through teaching a workshop at Committed to Cloth in Surrey. We’ve been blessed with beautiful weather this week: it has actually felt like summer! This has made a real difference to how we have been able to get out and explore the area around the studio.

We have recorded walks in a variety of ways and used what we found along the way in a range of print and mark making techniques.

We worked out in the meadow, and at the edge of woods, a short walk from the studio; yesterday printing outside, today manipulating grass and leaves and other gathered materials.

Tomorrow we finish, bringing things together in some simple book forms and whatever else appears out of the mix of ideas and starting-points we’ve explored.

  1. I live on a peach and cherry orchard in Colorado United States. I so love your approach to art. I love to walk and search for goodies to make into art as well. Thanks for all your inspiration.
