The Presses grow roots and we go to Ireland


Pencil on paper, LithoTreeAdanaPlant, 430 x 630mm

And welcome to Spring! The internet has taken second or third or last place on the list in the last few months. I have been doing a heck of a lot of drawing. One of them above. I have also been spending a lot time at the studio where we have no internet. I’m never going to be master/mistress of social media it seems.

Some things upcoming, to take note of: THIS SATURDAY Shed Press (Amelie and I) are off to Ireland to take part in the very first Lismore Story Festival: Towers and Tales. We will be demonstrating how to use a 5 x 3 Adana Press and leading some book binding workshops. This will be an all day drop in event so do DROP-IN if you happen to be in Ireland this weekend. There are some fantastic illustrators taking part including the extraordinary Chris Riddell.

Join me on Sunday 24th May at Richmix Bethnal Green Road, London, for the DIY Cultures Zine Fair. I’ll be there, 12 – 7pm, perched at the end of a table with photocopied £1 booklets to lush letterpress £25 books and everything in between.

We will be celebrating our 3rd year at Bow Arts studio with Open Studios on Friday 19 June and Saturday 20 June. More anon.
