Printing without a press workshop

So you have always wanted to learn how to make prints?
 If you would like to do a workshop with me learning  easy printmaking techniques, there is a class scheduled to run at Opendrawer a lovely shop in Hartwell (near Camberwell, Victoria ) next week, Friday 9 November. For details check out the website.
What a great way to spend a day, relaxed and fun printmaking, you could even get a few Christmas gifts or cards done.

A Jacob's Ladder book for Jacob.

Recently my son Jacob turned 21.
I have started a tradition of making a book for my children's 21st. Naturally, Jacob's would be in the form of a Jacob's ladder.
It works for him for at least 2 reasons. This book is one that moves on its own and Jacob has always been a mover, from when he was little to now- he is a triathlete,  and of course the obvious one is its name.

 I have uploaded a video of the book on youtube, for some reason I can't get it to upload onto this blog but if you want to see it in action click here

Books on display

Some of my little travel books are having an outing, along with some of my other books about travel. They are residing in the window shelves of a lovely little bookshop in Kensington called Wayward Books. 
This gorgeous shop is a treasure trove of new and secondhand books, lovingly cared for by Judy.
If you happen to be over there, take a peak through the window!
