Aberdour Festival Workshop

Thank you to everyone who participated in the artist book workshop last Sunday 22nd July.  The theme was the village of Aberdour itself, and we were using monoprint, collage and stick and ink to create the content within a concertina book structure.  There was a great deal of hard work and focus, indicated by many spells of quiet in the room....the big book that was created as a collaborative piece will hopefully be on display somewhere in Aberdour, venue to be the meantime here are some snaps of work in progress.

Aberdour Festival Workshop

I'm running an artist book workshop this Sunday with Susie Wilson, as part of the Aberdour festival.  Check out the programme, there's loads of great stuff going on, and if you fancy making an artist book based on Aberdour pop along to the Church Hall on the Main Street.  The workshop runs from 10-5pm but we're happy for people to come and go if they want to see other things.  This link takes you to the programme:

Susie and I will also have work on display in the exhibition space.
