Barmoor 2016

In May of this year I stayed at a quaker house called ‘Barmoor’ for 5 days, an art retreat with Aim4Art The house is situated on the edge of the North Yorkshire moors near Hutton Le Hole and has very basic facilities, but none the less it was a very pleasant stay with great company.

During my time there I did a few drawings and made some prints from the foliage in the garden. I have been toying with what to do with these prints ever since. My original idea just didn’t seem exciting enough.  But after much deliberation, I have come up with a squash book. I may still develop this further by using the reverse of the book for my remaining prints/rubbings/drawings and maps. But at the moment I am just relieved to have finally acted and made progress with this project.
