I was recently part of an interview held at Mackie's Corner to do with the work by the lovely Jo Howell from Wear Experimenting as part of The Cultural Spring. I was interviewed by Katie Bulmer Cooke as part of an advert for The National Lottery Arts. The video has just been recently released, the part where I was talking was not included in the edited version but you can catch a quick glimpse of me.
I visited The National Glass Centre this month. They had an interesting exhibition on that I wanted to go and see. The photo above is me in front of a large screen showing the sea. Below are some more photos from my visit.
I painted/designed a candle holder at my Guides Class recently. I love doing different crafts with my friends at Guides, I really like this craft as I can keep it forever and use it on a night in my room.
The photo below shows it when in the dark with a candle.
I was really pleased to be able to visit the Kielder Observatory with my family and friends. We were invited along after participating in the Wear Experimenting photography projects. The place is amazing, such lovely views and to get the chance to look into the telescopes there was a great experience. Here are some photos from my visit. I bought a souvenir cup to have a memory keepsake. I also got the opportunity to be part of a photo shoot.
I have been doing a lot of work participating in the Wear Experimenting events which have been held locally. I have really enjoyed taking part and learning new skills. I posted about the pin-hole camera which was made in one of the workshops. I also did some work with microscopes. I also got the chance to go to an observatory with my family and friends. Jo Howell, from Wear Experimenting had her work displayed at Mackie's Corner in Sunderland. I went along to her open day and also attended some workshops there too. Below are some photos of me beside photos of my participation which was included in the exhibition.
I was on Television, as part of the Sea swimming group I am part of. Fausto's Bathing Club in Sunderland meet a few times a week and we all go into the North Sea. I really enjoy this and have in the past shared photos of me in my wetsuit going into the sea.
Below is the link to Television article that was on ITV channel.
I posted last month about The Sunderland Indie art exhibition in Sunderland at Mackie's Corner, this time I went to the Part 2 exhibition. This had work from different local artists. Again I got the chance to chat with a few of them and also get my photo taken with a few of the artists. There are going to be a lot more exhibitions using this brilliant space Mackie's Corner, which I hope to visit too.
