I’m running a making and drawing workshop, as part of The Big Draw, on Saturday 2nd November at 38 Hoe St, London E17, with artists Anja Borowicz (recently graduated from her Masters degree at The Slade – well done Anja!) and Vanessa Maurice-Williams. We’re making soft chalk and oil pastels from scratch, then working on a large scale collaborative drawing together.
The workshop takes place at pop-up shop, 38 Hoe Street, the base for exciting new regeneration plans currently underway in Walthamstow, London. It’s a free workshop, drop in at any point, all ages welcome.
For more information please see the flyer below, also available to download here.
I exhibited my solo show, Happyland, for almost the full 16 days of this year’s E17 Art Trail. It doesn’t take a genius to work out that this meant I didn’t get to see a whole lot of other exhibitions on the trail, so, apologies for not having a lot to report.
I did however do a bit of moonlighting on the Art Trail, and took time out to make some rather large cardboard vegetables for The Veg Chapel of Love. A marriage of the vegetables of Walthamstow, to promote a love of vegetables and sustainable living (Idea conceived by Simon La Roche, brought to you by Simon and Krystyna La Roche, OrganicLea, Original Army, Marie Louise Plum and Animaux Circus).
Huge thanks go to Walthamstow Wine, who offered me exhibition space and provided me with gallons of most tantalising wines to help warm up people at my private view. If you’re local to Walthamstow, or ever passing, please do go and check them out. You can follow Walthamstow Wine on Twitter.
