New chapter for London Printworks Trust

As Chair, I'm pleased to announce that London Printworks Trust are in a process of transformation. Since our Arts Council core funding was withdrawn this time last year we have worked very hard to come up with an alternative form of organisation to ensure a viable future. 

On behalf of the Trustees I would like to thank Lorna Dallas-Conte and every member of the team for an exceptional year of work since the devasting news of our funding cut and am hugely proud of everything they've done, especially COUNTERFEAT - you can still buy notes now which will continue to support the new organisation. The Victoria Beckham notes will be withdrawn from the online shop at the end of June - so if you'd like a £50 cat note buy now!

Thank you to departing Trustees: Judy Hague, Carole Collet, Kate Hinds and James Barrett and welcome new Trustees, Liz O'Sullivan, Daniel Gayle and Michael Armstrong joining Andy Rothery who remains our Treasurer.

By following LPT blog you'll be kept up to date with news and information.

Craft Northern Ireland Making It

The second session for Craft Northern Ireland's Making It series is developing ranges and exploring markets. It follows up the initial business planning session which took place in January.

I will be joined by Matthew Maran wildlife photographer and we will outline how we have worked together since 2006 using the techniques described in the seminars. Matt's work has focused on Vancouver Island and culminated in a book published in 2011. 

There are still places available to book and the session will take place at Down Arts Centre on 29th March so book and see you there.

The session on 14th June will feature guest, Holly Berry, weaver to share techniques used when working with me as her mentor on the Crafts Council Hothouse scheme.
