Barmoor 2016

In May of this year I stayed at a quaker house called ‘Barmoor’ for 5 days, an art retreat with Aim4Art http://aim4art.org.uk. 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.
