I have been working on making lots of lino-cuts and this one is inspired by Jumeiux Cathedral in Normandy. It is said that William the Conqueror set out from Jumieux Cathedral on his quest to invade England. Anyway it is a most delightful ruin in a delightful little village. We took a lot of photos as I am especially fond of arches and arches framed within arches. The intention has been to make a quilt inspired by the rui but for now a linocut will have to do!
And I am now taking bookings for my next lino-cut course which will start on August 14 which is a friday. The course will consist of three fortnightly sessions looking at linocutting and developing your own imagery. The cost is $30 US for the three sessions. If you are on my waiting list I shall be in touch with you soon.
