The Handmade Parade!

Yesterday it was the Handmade Parade in Hebden Bridge. I was working at the beautiful Heart Gallery but I did sneak a peak!

The theme was journeys and everyone excelled themselves with their costumes! There were journeys to the sea, and strange lands, but this little expedition to space was one of my favourites!

The Canterbury Tales

Last week I saw Northern Broadsides production of The Canterbury Tales. It was such an imaginative and funny production. I have seen Northern Broadsides plays before, and the actors bring such a great energy and enthusiam to their profession, it inevitably becomes infectious. The venue was the Viaduct Theatre at Dean Clough which was really suited to the play. The seating is on either side of the stage, so a lot of movement on stage is required, so none of the audience misses out on the action! Again Northern Broadsides triumph at this, and deserved their numerous rounds of applause at the end.

West Yorkshire Print Workshop

Yesterday I went to West Yorkshire Print Workshop in Mirfield. I'm definitely not the best printer in the world, but this is my third visit and I am improving! I printed some new cards, based on my hometown of Hebden Bridge. It is really nice to be returning to printing, as during my university studies I was a regular in the screen-print room. I made many screen-printed books, which I'm sure will make an appearance on here when I'm feeling nostalgic.
