more miniature making fun

Guardian Big Draw 2010

Here are some great images taken by Chris Tribble from the Guardian News & Media Big Draw 2010...

I'm really happy to see some photos from my Miniature Me workshop! 

Keep an eye out for the adverts around September 2011 for the next Guardian Big Draw as places go fast.  It's a fantastic event for children - and the adults get well involved too :-)

Words of inspiration

I am teaching creative writing to EFL students and finding inspiration in the work produced and this work has prompted me to take a look at my other sources of inspiration.

I opted for a Creative Writing module as part of my BA degree at the London College of Communication.  A great choice as I was taught and truly inspired by Catherine Johnson and Ronnie McGrath.

I love the poetry and performance of established poets Aoife Mannix and former colleague Meryl Pugh

If you fancy hearing, experiencing or performing live poetry and the spoken word, I recommend Excess Express events, The Poetry Cafe and the Southbank Centre in London.

Check out the Poetry Society and Spread The Word websites....

State (of) Education

Ideas are brewing.

My current aim is to make work which is a comment on current affairs.  This is just the beginning...

Guardian Big Draw 2010

I am looking forward to running creative workshops once again at the Guardian News and Media Big Draw event 2010.

I'm returning as a guest illustrator and really pleased to be working in partnership with RCA alumni Joanne Ayre.

Check out the Big Draw website for event near you and maybe even organise your own!
