New gadget

I'm not a great one for gadgets but this new light pad is brilliant and so much easier to use than a traditional light box.

Top Drawer potter

I visited the 'Top Drawer' trade show this week and amongst the exhibitors was Keith Brymer Jones, one of the judges from 'The Great Pottery Throw Down', making throwing pots look incredibly easy!

I took part in a workshop today looking at ways to transfer images.

The first used sticky tape.

Tape was stuck over the image and smoothed out.

Then the paper was washed off the back of the tape.

The tape was then dried and then stuck down on paper or card.

An example on paper.

The technique worked well on glass.

Another method used nail polish remover on the back of photocopied images.

This produced interesting results both on the print and the original.

The workshop was organised by SE20 Art group member Yolanta and you can find out more about her workshops at
