The students are doing so well with this project. I spoke to them today about refining their skills and making the most of what they do well. The results are already very impressive and they had less than two hours to get this far. I can't wait to see the finished work!

For the month of March I will be showing a recycled paper woodland installation in the window of the Bluecoat Display Centre. Alongside this I will be running an altered book workshop at Cass Arts, Liverpool based on work in the installation.


Fungi covered Altered Book Tree Trunks

Saturday 24th March from 1 - 5pm

Cass Art's Liverpool store, 18 School Lane, Liverpool, L1 3BT

£25 per person including materials


Recycle an unwanted paperback book during this altered book workshop. We will be transforming paperback books into tree trunk sculptures covered in different types of fungi, which will be constructed from the leftover book pages and cass art papers through a series of cutting and paper manipulation techniques and will be enhanced with the use of other cass art products. Participants are invited to bring an old paperback book to recycle if they wish but books will be provided and available to use.


This workshop is limited to 10 participants so booking is essential.

Please note this event is open to adults and children over the age of 14.


Email crafts@bluecoatdisplaycentre.com for further details or call to pay over the phone on 0151 709 4014.


Supported by The Granada Foundation and Cass Art

Today I started the coral project at Prenton High School. I have adapted it from last years project so that the pupils can concentrate their effects on the coral alone. So this time they are going to be presenting it on driftwood. Today I introduced them to my practice and showed them three ways of working with paper.

It was lovely to see work inspired by my own at Neston High School. Although I am a little worried, I think I've got competition! Absolutely stunning work

My work has arrived in New York with the boxes a little worse for wear but the contents seems to be okay. Can't wait to see how they are to be displayed.

My work is on its way to New York for the exhibition 'Our Anthropocene: Eco Crises' exhibition inThe Center for Book Arts, 28 West 27th Street, New York, NY 10001

It's more well travelled than me, having travelled around Great Britain then onto Memphis, Jamaica and now to Newark.
