it's been a while! / by Clare Somerville-Perkins

I haven't touched base with my blog for a while so here's a little round up of what's been going on in my life both letterpress and beyond!!!!

As one of the artists featured in the International Letterpress Exhibtion 'Interrobang!' at Ditchling Museum of Art + Craft, I was invited to do a days printing in the museum on their beloved Stanhope Press which is over 200 years old and used by Eric Gill, Hilary Pepler and Edward Johnston. It was a great day and I met so fab people!

Visited the inspiring 'A Life in Letterpress' exhibition by Alan Kitching at Pick Me Up at Somerset House, had a great day and even got my book signed by the great man himself!

I took part in Ditchling Museum of Art + Craft 'The Big Steam Print' where I got to produce my largest print ever which measured 1 x 2 metres and than ran over it with a 12.5 ton vintage steam roller!! The day couldn't have been more perfect!
