Mary Gillett's workshop - a change of scene

With deadlines looming and time fast running out on the MA, I emailed Mary Gillett, a friend who runs an excellent print workshop in Devon, and I have spent a week working with her in her purpose built facilities. Mary runs a well organised, friendly and welcoming workshop, and offers a wide range of skills, specialising in etching. Futher details of her printmaking workshops and classes can be found on this link www.marygillett.co.uk/workshops




The facilities are spacious and as I had the space to myself it felt luxurious. Mary is very experienced as a teacher, is an accomplished artist herself  (do look at the gallery pages on the link) and was very helpful througout the week.

Now I can finally show a couple of previews of the big final project, and provide some proof that the work is actually getting done.




Thank you Mary for providing the opportunity for such a focused and productive week.


There is a couple of weeks now while the University is closed where I will have to let this stage of the prints settle. So I'm back to my drawing board, I've got an interseting piece of Larch wood to draw on...

Sounds intriguing and looks amazing. How wonderful to be able to immerse yourself in your work in such surroundings. No wonder it was productive.
