Printmaking with Mr Shearer

The tables were refreshingly turned recently, as I became student for a few days under the expert teaching of printmaker Charles Shearer. Over three days I made stencil and collograph prints.
Charles is a very fine printmaker and a calm, dedicated teacher.

Tracing the dead!

I found this today at the base of Derby cathedral. The cathedral has nesting peregrines and there are the remains of quite a lot of birds that were supper for these birds of prey. This leg was still 'ringed', I brought it home and after a little research had to phone a racing pigeon man in Stoke-on-Trent, to tell him that one of his birds would not be coming home...he took it well.
