She's finished and so is my last year of uni. I've had an amazing time and met some really lovely people. I'm going to miss it so much. . . Silver Crow is patchworked with cyanotypes taken during lockdown. They've been exposed to the sun, the rain, clouds and a pink super moon. She's my little time capsule of a strange and unusual time. She's also full of hope... and has a wonky spine just like me. She's also holding a found birds nest, blown down during Storm Dennis. I've loved making her and feel like she is actually finished! A new feeling for me. . . . . Thank you @rhino_potato for taking all the mozzy bites while helping with the photography 😘 . . . . #thesilvercrowproject
Birdy tootsies! She's almost finished! . . . . #birddoll #the100dayproject #thesilvercrowproject #100daysofprintandtextiles
I've been signing these limited edition screen prints today and have sent them back to @theprintblock where they will appear in their shop soon. Prints can be reserved on request. The print is taken from an original cyanotype I did specifically for this. My response to what is going on right now. Spending time in my teeny tiny garden, doing my prints, usually from weeds... a lot of which are my favourite plants... well that has been my calm place. My tiny bit of nature for the soul. The print is called Hold On and Suki really made a beautiful screenprint out of it, just so lovely. . . . If youd like get your hands on some original screenprints by artists all over the country for a really reasonbable price (£30) please visit the Offcut Project link in my profile or through @theprintblock page. The Offcut Project is a truly wonderful initiative to give artists a chance to work in these strange times while also benefitting an amazing charity. I am so proud and honoured to be taking part. . . . (This next bit taken from the website) Each image has been printed onto leftover offcuts from our studio and the project ends when the offcuts run out! The aim has been to mark this extraordinary part of history that we are living through and to bring together a community of artists who are all working in isolation. The project is also raising much needed funds for food banks across the country with at least £10 from each print sale going to The Trussell Trust. . . . . . . #theoffcutproject #cyanotype #screenprint
So... my #the100dayproject is probably going to end some time in December but I will carry on. I am making, it's just stress making for my final FINAL ever EVER uni project. (Unless I do the Masters) . . I've been twisting wire and tin foil and stabbing my fingers with needle felting... hopefully something decent will emerge at the end . . Thank goodness for that @sinead_stoddart_animator puppet workshop in year 2! . . . . . . . #fluffyfeet #100daysofprintandtextiles #thesilvercrowproject #the100dayproject2020
MADE IT TO THE TOP! Take that dodgy back! . . And I climbed over the stile too! Whoop! . . . . . .
There's a whole galaxy in this one Mum! When the stroppy almost teen sees a galaxy in a shell, you stop and look. And she was right. And so we brought it home to keep it safe. . . . . . . . .
