I have kept myself very busy during the past weeks.
First of all, a book making workshop in Wrexham, at the Regional Print Center with Michelle Rowley. Feels good to finally put some techniques on all this bits and pieces I gathered along the way.
Then 2 visits with the Aber Art Center in galleries in North and South Wales.
