Just enjoyed the final four days at Dutch House eco gardens printing with a fabulous group of hard working people all open to the idea of printing from plants, for some it was their first introduction to printmaking, others were experienced artists rekindling a connection to printmaking. All produced some fantastic pieces.

On my studio floor - only little - but challenging little prints, aiming to produce a series of similar but each with their own personality monoprints

After 8 months of visiting, picking and printing from plants in the lovely gardens of the Dutch House my exhibition there along with some wonderful wooden scupture by Sam Harrison in the Kunsthuis Gallery is up and hanging. Opens on Wednesday and runs until the 28th September

Whilst at the Dutch House this week I have been delivering a much longer and more intense than usual workshop - so amazed by the results - some of the participants are totally new to printmaking - they have all worked so hard and made some beautiful prints and books

Loving my new little portable printing press - perfect for my residency at the Dutch House Kunsthuis - as often is the case limitations create new openings - the tiny size of this press has resulted me in exploring working on a continual long piece of paper - resulting in a very long print that has ambitions to be a scroll book - it's early days but I am enjoying this way of working and the challenges it brings. Also enjoying having an indoor tree as a drying rack. An exhibition of work produced from monthly visits to the Dutch House gardens opens on the 27th August and runs until the 28th September
