Bono has the biggest collection of hatchbacks in the UK

We decided to play tribute to Alan Partridge at this years Glastonbury, with a flag.

I don't think I need to say anymore.

The making was a team effort from me and Mr Ian Beverley.

Art Therapy Workshop

So after considering a career in Art Therapy for a long while, I went to Goldsmiths and did a Summer School to get a clearer picture of what the training and job actually entails.

It was a really interesting week, learnt a lot about how training, group and individual sessions are conducted. Also made some really good friends.

We did one piece of group art during the week, and I just really loved the outcome I wanted to share it.
Maybe I'd like to use it as an album cover someday.
Part of it still exists, most of it was binned. It was one of those event type pieces of work.
