CSM Work in Progress Show/ Private View.

Last week we had our Third Year Illustration Work in Progress Show at Blackall Studios which was a huge success! The private view night was sponsored by the amazing Think-Work-Play and Pernod Absinthe who plied our guests with cocktails from their Absinthe fountain and punch bowls. You can check them out here
I exhibited some Bauhaus collages and some new test screen prints that I'll be photographing properly next week. A massive thank you to everyone who came and to Lerayne for the photos of the private view.

To coincide with Women's History Month, I've been running a series of print workshops at The October Gallery for primary school children. It was my first experience of doing anything like this and although I found it daunting I really enjoyed doing it and learnt a lot in the process. I devised a two hour workshop that involved the children exploring the current exhibition by Laila Shawa and then creating their own visual response to the show's themes and ideas, using collage and simple screen printing methods. They made some really beautiful work!

As a close to the month, the gallery will be holding a symposium this weekend with guest speakers including Zawe Ashton, Benjamin Zephaniah and Darter Collective. More information here.
