Welcome to the 2016 Auction For Aid.…

Oh, Make It Magnificent

What a week!



Quite apart from the preparations for the new students starting next week (and the previous ones returning, of course), I've spent a lot of time in the workshops - on Tuesday evening as much to avoid violent thunderstorms as anything else - making up work for the Made In The Middle show, work which shows a completely new way of working for me, eschewing applied - illustrative - narrative for a more 'improvised' narrative of material, being braver about allowing the…

This week I've been mostly working on the pieces for "Made in the Middle"…
