Rollers & Instant Books

These were printed with adapted rollers that Natalie Kay Thatcher  & I made out scaffolding foam & pipe lagging. Water-based relief printing inks were used (from Intaglio the great printmaking shop near Bermondsey, London). 

I folded and cut the wallpaper lining sheets to make some large instant books.

Wildwoman at Turner Contemporary, Margate

Part of the workshops curated for the Turner Contemporary's summer show, Curiosity, was my Wildman Life Drawing Class - it ran over two days - the first featured a Wildwoman, the second a Wildman, Wildboy and Wildbaby.

Curiosity,art and the pleasures of knowing.

The Sasquatch made an appearance before returning to North America in the Autumn 

Some of the drawers, young & old took part in the modelling, mothers introduced their young ones to the Wildwoman.

Wildwoman Revealed

The Wildwoman made her own beautiful coverings for the class

A participant dressed up and joined in - (I'm considering  developing this aspect, bringing along a number of costumes for people to wear to really become part of the class in every sense.) 

The same participant's drawing of the Wildwoman - a brilliant drawing.
