carnations.......to keep my self sane during the retail insanity .... preping for a papermaking session!
these come from a couple of bunches of flowers, one of which was given to me on my birthday........
as we papermakers know.........after cooking the petals will loose their lovely colours but I will reintroduce them by pigmenting the gampi and kozo fibres.

The second two session workshop I was invited to teach was at The University of the Creative Arts, Farnham.......... Originally I was going to teach papermaking to the MA Book students but it was changed to a book making workshop - 'hard bound books'.......having taught it at Central St Martins under the tutelage of Douglas Bevins ..... I had the knowledge/samples/images necessary to put together a session that would enable the students to complete a couple of easy samples....that would lead them to create work pertaining to their own ideas in the following week.... a very enthusiastic pair of students - great to work with!
'Serendipitous Circles' by Tess
'French Coffee' by Alex - text will be added to the insides of the filter pages
using coffee grounds
Over the last two months I had the opportunity to work with
two groups of MA students.
The Institute is located in the Minories Art Gallery which is an amazing building...had to take some photos.....
