Monoprinting at Curwen

Jan 20, 2014

Those local to Cambridge will know about Curwen, but if you are further a field and are desperate for printing facilities and courses please look at the website

I went up there ( it is on one of the only hills around here) for two days of Open access at the start of the New Year. With only six artists in a huge room full of presses and workspace and with two technician/tutors at hand it is a dream come true. All the equipment is clean and ready. Open access costs £48 per day so plan and prepare carefully – I always try – but then find after at least half a day that it is just not happening. Another cup of tea and a review and slowly the prints start talking back to me, the right techniques, the spontaneous mark making starts to happen. Then I can’t print fast enough, can’t sleep that night – busy planning the next day.

Two days later and I have at least 12 monoprints ready to collage and draw into. Got to stay loose.

Looking at a Burlesque drawing session in Camden this weekend….

Sooo.. Welcome to my blog.

I have been busy finding my way around wordpress and paypal. Lots of images blogged and not many words so far.  I have a very tight neck and sore shoulders from sitting at my laptop for three days so I am looking forward for to a big yoga session tomorrow. Next step is to intergrate all this social media. I am on FB and twitter and use mailchimp for newsletters – which is really user friendly.

What finally made me sit down and get on with it?

Signing up with Kathryn Roberts   made my write a business plan. I follow Katherine Tyrell’s fantasic blog here I came across Roos Schuring

I watched Roos’s inspirational ‘no messing –  do it now’ clips and got on with it. A big thanks to all those artists who spend their precious time sharing their marketing knowledge to help others. A happy creative, inspiring, focused, positive, productive New Year!

Hello world!
