Altered postcards

Another batch of postcards that have been altered ready to pass on to the others to re-alter. Using our own themes of work. I use this exercise ,the dark art of procrastination, as a warm up to the real work for the gallery in 44AD Bath, haha!

a visit to Bath

Five of our group having a cuppa before visiting 44AD. It was great to see the space as a group to start considering what work might go where.

books

17 April 17 - Corinne Renow-Clarke


For a number of years I have made sketchbooks to take away on holidays and trips. Each book takes about a day to make as there are lots of pages to cut and paint before stitching the pages together. I try and work in them every day when I’m away maybe noting colours in the landscape, traffic details on roads, people, quirky windows, doors and chimneys etc when we’re actually travelling. On our days out I love to go to museums and stately homes where I can revel in drawing the wealth of patterns and details to be found or to draw landscapes, seascapes and cityscapes. Drawing is fundamental to my work; I need to draw every day.


My intention is to make some sketchbooks based on Bath. The Victoria Art Gallery, the Holburne Museum, the American Museum, the Fashion Museum and the Roman Baths are just a few places to visit and draw. Then there are the many wonderful architectural buildings and landscapes to record in and around Bath. These sketchbooks will be on display at our Underpinning exhibition at 44AD near the Abbey in September along with any work inspired by my travels.

Underpinning



                
I bought this old hand held roller printer at the antiques market. Still have to renovate the inking roller. Trying it out with an ordinary ink pad. Would like to use it in my hand made books.

Carolyn is thinking about Bath in Bloom and is making flowers. This tiny one sits in a thimble.
