Images or words?

Sometime it is hard to know what to write in a blog, so thought this time I would just update you with some more images of my work! Enjoy. 

New Stone

March 20, 2014 by Kathryn Poole   Comments (0)


I am working on a new stone for my degree show, continuing with the composite monsters. After being tutored by Leighton I feel confident processing this stone independently. I have finished grinding the stone and have drew up the image to be processed today. Fingers crossed it goes well.

The half finished drawing:



I will post more pictures tomorrow with the processing results and hopefully a new print.

Other news

We're excited to have launched the first few of our presentations promoting self-employment as both a career and lifestyle option. Wendy Mason, AA2A's National Director, has been travelling the country presenting to Fine Art and Design students going through the 'nuts and bolts' of self-employment and busting the myth that only the most self-motivated graduates go self-employed.

We've had some excellent feedback...

  • "Brilliant session. Great advice and has made me more confident to consider self-employment."
  • "Very interesting and full of useful information that I didn't know was available about becoming self-employed. Makes everything clear!"
  • "Thanks the tax information was the most helpful."

With time ticking I'm torn between wanting to frantically cast things - and to frantically weld things - how will I LIVE without these two new joys in my life?!
