I’m showing you some prints I’ve made today in a joy-filled online session that I participated in this morning – with the community arts group that I help to run (https://gwendraethartslab.com/). We worked with things from our rubbish bins – things like bottle tops and cardboard tubes, taking me back to the joy of being […]
