Autumn jobs

 a short pause in calligraphic projects to string onions, shallots and make plum jam
well you may not be able to see the difference but I am happier with this one!

Classes starting this September

New course starts 19 September 2011 - We meet on a Monday afternoon so those with children can collect them from school after the class. The room is set up for teaching calligraphy with lots of books and other visual resources. Some of the group will be working towards the CLAS Intermediate Diploma and others will hopefully work on a group project with Christmas in mind at the end of term

More trials

Call me a perfectionist but I am going to have to do this again - I like the colours but it is too squashed at the bottom right. This is actually about half the size of the last one on A3 paper.

Back from Sunderland

Inspired by working with Thomas Ingmire and David Annwn, I am trying to complete a piece that I started in my week away. So far am on version 4! the poem is called Night Column and there are hidden animals in the text - I have found 10 - can you find any more?

We were greeted with bumper crops of sweet peas, courgettes and plums on our return from holiday - a pause in calligraphic efforts, to make jam, is called for now
