A-N Professional Development Bursary 2017
This bursary has been awarded to me to research into and develop a specific range of printing inks, made solely from UK sourced materials. Hollybank and the South Downs will be my main area of collection of earth, rock and substance which I will then process myself in my studio into printing inks. The aim is to create as wide a range of colour as possible, with the outlook of printing several large scale woodcuts using solely the UK ink.
Information on this project can be found by following the A-N Blog I have created, at this link.
Oppeneheim-John Downes Memorial Trust Grant 2016
This grant was awarded to support the creation of 3 new sculptures to go on permanent displaye at Hollybank Woods. The three pieces which are being constructed this year will work with bi-product from the operations at Hollybank combined with print and textile components.
Updated information on the works and when they are installed for viewing will be added here.
Pushing Print Bursary 2015
I was awarded this grant to support the purchase of a specialist bike trailer to carry a medium size Gunning Arts etching press. This would enable me to set up a pop-up print press in any location accessible by my bike.
The Washroom Pop-Up Press has since been on many outings from woodlands to village halls, bringing print to all.
