Exhibition and Open Studios

The beginning of July is going to be very busy with the two biggest events in my calendar both beginning in the first week. My exhibition at the Old Fire Engine House, Ely Opens on Friday 6th July and continues through to the 5th August. You are cordially invited to the private view on Thursday, 5th July between 6:30 and 8:30pm:

Once again, I am downstairs at the Old Fire Engine House in the lovely room that shows my work well in a domestic setting. Here is a photograph from my 2010 show:

I will be exhibiting approximately fifty engravings an about half of them are being shown here for the first time, including much new work. Some old favourites will be shown for the last time

At the same time, I am opening as part of the Cambridge Open Studios on the weekends of July 7th/8th and 14th/15th between 11am and 6pm.

 I will be showing the whole range of my engravings and handmade books. The work is for sale but do feel free to just come along and have a look.  I will also  be demonstrating engraving and printing on the Albion handpresses:

You will also be able to examine my sketchbooks and see how my work develops form the initial rough drawings:

You can see photographs and a short movie of last year's Open Studio in this blog post from last year.

 It would be great to see anyone who follows this blog - do say "Hi!"
