Summer updates

This Summer is a busy one; I am working as one of ten artists on Surrey Unearthed, an eight-month  landscape project set in the Surrey Hills,  and I have work in some exhibitions and will be running a few workshops.

Surrey Unearthed

Surrey Unearthed is an Arts Council funded programme of installations, events and projects and has has been developed with artists who have a strong connection and curiosity for the Surrey landscape. These projects focus on the natural materials of the Surrey Hills landscape, their history and uses over time. The installations, art walks and community celebrations coincide with the Surrey Hills 60th year AONB designation.

For my  project, Terrain, I will be walking, collecting materials, talking to people and making work across the whole area but particularly in Witley Common, Box Hill, Newlands Corner and Reigate Hill from June 2018 – April 2019. Most of my workshops during this period will be for specific groups but there will be some open to the public and I will post about them nearer the time though I am delighted to be able to say that I’ll be running an afternoon of papermaking at Leith Hill Place on Saturday 21 July 2.30 – 5pm as part of this project. Booking will be via the Leith Hill Place National Trust website.
