Hi! Welcome to my creative blog log.

It’s a collection of things I’ve been making and creating over the last few years.  I’ve mostly made jewellery, both at home and at evening courses at the Leeds College of Art.  I enjoy learning different arts and crafts techinques and during 2017 focused on studying art. Here is a list of things I’ve been up to that feature in this blog:

  • Jewellery making with silver, recycled copper, enamelling, beading and semi precious stone setting.
  • Willow work baskets, a chair and a live willow den
  • Metal sculpture at Yorkshire Sculpture Park
  • Wood working, green wood on a pole lathe, wood turning bowls, furniture making
  • Hedge laying, dry stone walling
  • Leather boot making
  • Expressive painting at St Martins College
  • Learning to paint with watercolours & gouche
  • Acrylic painting with knives, life drawing, abstract painting, experimental drawing, sketching
  • Creative writing
  • Printmaking with monoprints, drypoint, etching and screen printing
  • Creative Arts Today – distance learning module in 2017 with the Open College of the Arts.
  • Portfolio course during winter 2017 with Bridgehouse Arts in Ullapool.

I hope you enjoy seeing what I’ve been up!
