Also at The Old Truman Brewery this weekend, an Art Fair for the future: Kinetica Art Fair. Again, I attended the PV on Thursday night and then popped back with Jack on Saturday to see more/take more photos. It looked interesting from outside and inside, it certainly was: There was a lot of weird and wonderful things to see using lights, mirrors, illusions, magnets, moving parts and motion sensors. I found ‘Espaces chromatiques Rectangles en...

A bit later than planned, sorry! Last weekend I explored a new part of East London: Hackney Wick/Hollywood/Hackney Wick – spot the difference. The streets were buzzing because for 3 days artists and designers were opening their studios, exhibiting work and installations so Lucy, Gabby & I wandered. Hackney WickED is quite spread out and despite having a map (which was useless & so pixelated that we couldn’t read the road names) it was a bit of...

With a Tesco express popping up every 5 minutes, small independent cornershops are becoming a rarity (well, in London anyway). However, just off Columbia Road, Lucy Sparrow is rebelling with her project which Lucy, Nadia & I went to check out last weekend: Although it stocks everything from space raiders to fish fingers, The Cornershop isn’t what it first appears… look closer: Everything is made of felt! Hand crafted by Lucy Sparrow and exhibited in their...

Kipple. What? What is that? Useless? Unnecessary? Novelty? Mostly one colour? Junk? Tick to all of those and congratulations, it’s kipple! Still unsure? Check Dan Tobin Smith’s list here. He’s creating an installation using donated kipple: This project reminds me of the ‘Make Space’ campaign which I created for National Declutter Week in the last year of my degree. I removed everything from my room and used the space to do fun things with my friends....

Is there a better way to spend a Sunday afternoon than sign painting at the Tate Britain? Sophie appealed to twitter for some company to attend the Animaux Circus workshop and I jumped at the chance! After a brief introduction to the collective (who I was familiar with after seeing them at Pick Me Up 2014) we discussed a few ideas for our signs. Being the indecisive person that I am, I didn’t know what I...

Love. What is love? It’s that warm fuzzy feeling. It’s special, amazing, beautiful and magical. It’s one of those feelings that can only be experienced, and thanks to the Southbank Centre you can do just that at the Festival of Love. Lucy & I popped in last weekend after arriving too early at Trafalgar square for the Pride parade (which we didn’t get to see after all!) and ended up spending about 3 hours wandering...

I am sooooo keen on the latest Visual Expression project to make a zine – my fave project so far! For those of you who don’t know what a zine is, it’s a handmade, mini magazine which has a small print run of usually 500 or less.  They are usually quirky, controversial and very experimental so the complete opposite to the Magazine project (for which I received some quite good feedback in a critique on...

With it being Valentine’s day yesterday and all, I thought it was about time to post about Marian’s work seeing as I’ve had this drafted since before christmas(which is quite weird considering the subject)! Whether you are loved up or anti-valentines, theres no denying that these laser cut, used Christmas cards from 2010 are beautiful! Marian asked her friends to send her used christmas cards and 500 cards later…. … she had a lot of hearts!...

Yesterday we got all sketchy in class with some old format technology! Old Macs, Typewriters, Cameras, Floppy Disks, Stereos… the list goes on! Armed with lots of pens, pencils and paints we flexed our creative muscles: As an 80’s child (for 6 days) I decided to take the Neon approach for my stereo… Then in groups of 3 we produced a big drawing, starting from the same point but in each of our own different...

Last night I went to Lincoln’s Kind Bar for an Anti-Valentines evening of Screen Printing, Illustration and music held by Break Your Socks. It was a really chilled, cool evening with a great creative atmosphere! I would definitely recommend it to anyone who can get to Lincoln – it’s a monthly thing – wahey! I will see you at the next one for sure, but first check out my images from last night: On sale...

OSC, Reading? Let me explain… Oakford Social Club, Reading. As many of you will know, last week/weekend was Reading Festival 2010! I have been to Reading Festival for 3 consecutive years now, but this year I did wonder if I was at Glastonbury instead – the mud was pretty bad! Apparently I should have expected it to be muddy, ‘it’s all part of a festival’, but 2008 and 2009 were dry, sunny and lovely! Nevermind!...

Search ‘Zoe Bradley’ on google images and I challenge you to find work by her which is below amazing! Hah, what’s that, I win?! Yes… her work is actually amazing! If you like Yulia Broskaya’s paper magic then you will love Zoe Bradley’s installations, window displays and fashion pieces all crafted with paper. She has done work for Tiffany & Co., Selfridges, Luis Vutton, Vogue and even made Royal Mail look glamourous! I wonder how...

Here’s a question for you: What can you make with….. …A Morrison’s Value mixing bowl A metre of green ribbon An A1 sheet of green card An A4 sheet of red paper A black polystyrene pizza packaging tray A metre of white cotton material and A Poundland Solar Panel Garden Post Light? (which I got I.D.ed for because apparently it could be used as a weapon so you need to be 21 to buy it – so...

As the second part of our Visual Art Award (follow up to Printmaking) we have been set a multidisciplinary project. This means that we can choose to use a range of disciplines from the ‘art’ family: Textiles, Graphic Design, Illustration, Photography, 3D, Painting, Collage…. I can’t think of anymore? haha The theme is Leisure which means, that like last time, it could be anything: Travelling, Cooking, Gardening, Collecting…. you name it, someone in the world...
