This is an image of my stand at Printfest, Ulveston in the Southern Lake District.
I had kept a low profile over the last couple of years and in many ways it was daunting to go off, sleep in a strange bed and be amongst lots of people, but I’m pleased to say that all went well and that it was a wonderful event and so busy, I feel as if I’m only just recovering.
I did enjoy myself, with lots of lovely conversations with both visitors and fellow printmakers.
I always take along a textile piece from my collection and this time I incorporated into the stand design, the front of a gentleman’s waistcoat from the middle of the C18th. I felt that it helped visitors to make the connections between the original and my interpretations.
And here all 44 printmakers are together just before it all it all started. Image by the Official Photographer.
Come along if you can.
