School workshop - finished

The hard work of me and 130+ infant pupils installed in the shelter. Right on the edge of the playground for all the parents to see. Now on to the next project which is the Open Studio - 2nd to 4th June at the frailoop studio in Ilkeston. (I'm number 175 in the DART Open Studios programme).

School workshops

Been busy recycling broken pallets into into art work with the help of 130 infant pupils over 2 days. Quite happy to be an artist, not a teacher! Some lovely kids, but after two days the piece and quiet of my studio...

Watch this space

The Gardeners Bothy will be having an 'insect' themed event in June. I've been busy creating bees, butterflies, dragonflies and some spiders (with and without webs) - over 50 pieces so far - that will be my part. Photo will be posted next week. (That's because I forgot to take a picture before leaving the studio today...)

New bird

Its been a while again, but its nice and busy in the studio with lots of events coming up soon - starting with the DART open studio over the June Bank Holiday weekend. I am planing to get lots of birds made and out to shows this year including a new event at a Warner Hotel (more details to follow).
This bird has a broken d - lock for legs, broken shear blades for wings and worn out mole grips for the tail.
