That’s all the information you’re getting at this stage, nosy parker. You can have more information when it’s finished.
Hurrah! In these cold, wintry days (I thought it was still autumn, but oh no. It’s winter) there is a warm glowing feeling to be had at Make and Mend craft market.
Come say hello on Saturday 3rd November at Grainger Market in the very very centre of Newcastle upon Tyne, innit.
I bet you’re clever enough to click onto their website to see the full image of this stunningly beautiful (and awesomely terrifying) artwork by the elusive Cuttlefish. Is he a man? Is he a fish? Is he a snackfood for budgies? If you find out please let me know, these questions are starting to cause me concern.
I’ve been a busy young lady. Here are 3 new etchings I’ve made:
Things I learned from this lot of etchings include:
I’m also setting myself up for all the craft markets in the world, ever. These are:
And possibly a couple more dates to be arranged but then, looking at this list, I feel quite exhausted already.
These etchings, yes genuine hardground etchings, are the reasons I have acid stains on my arms. It kinda looks like spashes of very orange fake tan.
I did an etching course at the lovely and amazing Northern Print. It involved more metalwork and manual labour than I’d anticipated, which is a very good and enjoyable thing indeed.
‘Wor Bridges’ is, umm, based on Newcastle’s beautiful bridges. ‘The Commuter’ is a dodo because of the Parisian commuters.
So last weekend I etched and was exhausted, this week I got mounts sorted out, and this weekend I will be a half-a-stallholder at the Make and Mend Market at Grainger Market. Which may well make me exhausted again. Oh, and very very happy throughout the whole process.
Maybe when I’m less exhausted I’ll take some less rubbish photos of the etchings.
