Just enjoyed the final four days at Dutch House eco gardens printing with a fabulous group of hard working people all open to the idea of printing from plants, for some it was their first introduction to printmaking, others were experienced artists rekindling a connection to printmaking. All produced some fantastic pieces.

Whilst at the Dutch House this week I have been delivering a much longer and more intense than usual workshop - so amazed by the results - some of the participants are totally new to printmaking - they have all worked so hard and made some beautiful prints and books

Loving my new little portable printing press - perfect for my residency at the Dutch House Kunsthuis - as often is the case limitations create new openings - the tiny size of this press has resulted me in exploring working on a continual long piece of paper - resulting in a very long print that has ambitions to be a scroll book - it's early days but I am enjoying this way of working and the challenges it brings. Also enjoying having an indoor tree as a drying rack. An exhibition of work produced from monthly visits to the Dutch House gardens opens on the 27th August and runs until the 28th September
