The Late Shows

For the first time ever this year I'll be running an open studio, chatting about my work and running a hands on workshop demonstrating a couple of different methods of printmaking.

So wether you're just after a spot of new work to adorn your walls, want to know just what exactly silkscreen printing is, or you're just a plain old nosey bugger, you're equally welcome to come and hang out in my home away form home.

I'm based on the 6th floor of Commercial Union House on Pilgrim Street - that's the big brutalist (re. ugly) concrete building that overhangs the road opposite the Tyneside cinema. Just hang a left out of the lift and take a stroll to the end of the corridor.

There's a ton of stuff going on in my building, and the whole of Newcastle & Gateshead, so be sure to stop by HERE for the full details!

Maker Faire UK

If you're like me and you like to have a play at making things, oggle at robots, and chase bubbles bigger than a person, Maker Faire is just about the most fun you can have in a single weekend! The Centre for Life are the hosts of this celebration of science and craft and they always do a fantastic job of making the show feel like it's never ending and exhausting in the best possible way.

I'll be leading a relief printmaking workshop over the weekend at Maker Faire, it'll be drop-in so no booking is required, it's hand on, it's free, and absolutely anyone can have a go; especially kids (and big kids). We'll be documenting everyone's favourite exhibits at this years show and printing them all in a huuuuge book ready to pass on to the Centre for Life once the show is complete.

I'll have my own printwork with me as well so you're more than welcome to come along and peruse the newest work. For those of you who liked the A-Z of science prints I'm planning a large format print of some kind with all of the prints on a single surface for this event.

You can find out more about the show here.

Gateshead College are hosting an event for gamers, artists and film makers from all over the North East and I've been invited to bring my work along and set up shop. I'll be debuting a new ship in a bottle print, and there's a huge amount going on throughout the day (inlcuding a Smash Bros tournament) so come on down and test yourself against my Kirby skillz!
