India Street Workshop at Comar, Mull | Saturday 3 June

India Street is an exhibition/project curated by Katy West that has been on going since 2014 and I am delighted to have been one of seven designers invited to take part since it began.

The exhibition is now on tour and currently residing in Comar arts centre in Tobermory on Mull until Friday 7th July. I was thrilled to be invited to host a screen printing workshop as part of the events programme running alongside the exhibition's new outing. So I headed over to Mull with Katy for a weekend of printing, Bollywood films and exploring the beauty of Mull...

 We missed our first ferry but it was such a beautiful night it didn't matter - this is the 19.30 crossing from Oban to Mull

Huge thanks to everyone that took part in our workshop, to Comar arts for having us along to take this workshop and to KAty for making it all happen! It was so much fun and a pleasure to work with such an enthusiastic bunch of printers! Catch the show before it ends on the 7th July or you'll have to head over to Mumbai or Ahmedabad in November 2017 to see it....
