Marine Sports


I have been a fan of Marine Sports for a few years now. I have took part in classes and enjoyed Pier Jumping, body boarding and many others.  This year I bought my own wet-suit so I can go in the water anytime I want. My big sister also comes along with me when I go in the water. I thought I would share with you some recent photographs.  I normally do this at Roker Beach next to the pier.

Pin Hole Camera


I have been making some pin-hole cameras from empty drinks cans. I attended a class run by The Cultural Spring and Wear Experimenting in Sunderland in the summer. I really enjoyed this class and some of my friends joined in too which was great fun.  This is the first time I have took photographs using this technique.  I have since attended some of the drop-in events that Wear Experimenting have been doing all over Sunderland and took many more photographs.  It has been a very fun and interesting experience. The lady who runs it is called Jo and she is brilliant.  I will try to show in a later post some photographs that were took from these cameras.






Below is a photograph of me at one of the Pop-up tents for Wear Experimenting.


This photograph below is a photograph that Jo from Wear Experimenting took of me on a polaroid camera of a double exposure.

Furniture Make-Over


I attended a local workshop where they teach you how to make-over furniture. They actually provide you with a piece of furniture at the class. I chose a shelving unit.  I was taught how to sand the furniture down first which was a messy hard job.  Then I had to paint an undercoat on the piece. This was a weekly class so it took a few weeks to complete it.  I then used both spray painting and brush paint to complete the design. I did this as part of Cultural Spring and Parkers Trust in Sunderland. The staff were really good and the other people were really friendly.

Screen Printing with Ink


I recently went to a Screen Printing session, the first time I have done this type of art. I made a T-shirt using the press.  I previously posted about the paper design I mad, but this time I have shared the photos of the ink on fabric.  I was really pleased with this.

Screen Printing with Paints


I attended a Screen Printing Class and did a couple of pieces of work. This is the first piece I designed using the paints. It is the first time I had used this technique and I really enjoyed it.

Stormy Seas Photographs


I enjoy using my camera to take photos when I am out during the day. Here are some photographs I took when I was down at the seafront at Seaburn in Sunderland. It was a stormy day but I was in a safe distance so you don't need to worry.
