HBOS 2013 First Day

A great first day of Hebden Bridge Open Studios with many lovely visitors at Brooklyn Studios. 
A pleasure to explain the woodcut process to some delightful children and adults.

A mid Summer morning is the only time the sun shines directly into my space - and here's the new greetings card soaking up the early rays.

Hebden Bridge Open Studios 2013

A frantically busy few days getting my slightly neglected studio space at Brooklyn Studios ready for Hebden Bridge Open Studios.  All is now spick and span although I have aged 5 years in the past week!

I will be in my studio from 11 am to 5 pm tomorrow and on Saturday and Sunday, so if you are in the region, do drop by for a chat and a cup of tea.

This year I've got more woodcut prints on display than ever before, as well as some paintings, artist's books and folded paper cuts.

In honour of 'Open Studio Pink' - (the magenta used on the Open Studios logo and literature) I've given on of my cyanotype cards a make-over via the marvel that is Photoshop. The foxgloves seemed the ideal subject for this shade of deep pink.
