Ochre paints, charcoal, chalk and tree gums were part of a giveaway to mark 2000 followers on Instagram. They went to an artist in the USA. 

Happy New Year!

Greetings from the river Thames, where I stand at my desk in my floating studio, wishing you all the very best for the year ahead. I am involved in several projects and events this year, with more being added over the next few weeks. I will be teaching wild materials around the story ‘The Wild Swans’ at Sharon Blackie‘s mini-festival HedgeWise in April and teaching wild inks again in Sweden in the spring. There will be a seaweed ink expedition to Mull in the summer and ochre-foraging trips in England in July and November. I hope to be showing work in Wales in the summer and Dartington in November too, and as dates and venues are set I will post all of this here and on my Instagram. Meanwhile it’s willow foraging time, and in the studio there is much drawing with earths, lichen, fungi and plant colours, as well as making buckskin, bark-tan leather and other crafts.

All this to say, the hand made life continues in all seasons. The Oak Gall Ink workshop in November was a great success. Coming up is Painting on Buckskin on 25th January, there is one place left. After that we have Making Hand Made Natural Watercolours from Scratch on 8th and 9th February. There are places remaining on the 9th, get in touch if you would like to come along. The venue is near Hampton Court, UK.

Wishing you all the very best for your life and art in the coming year.

Caro.
