Over the past 4 months I have been working on a new collection of abstract screenprints called Almanac, celebrating the changing of seasons. An almanac is a type of calendar, traditionally showing moon phases and important dates for farming. I have broken down the collection to reflect important dates in the calendar. Beltane is the 1st of May, a very important day for many reasons, a celebration of fertility, life and growth.
This work has been directly inspired by my 100 Day Project, #100DaysOfSolitudeAndScissors. I have been making small collages every day. These collages explore form, colour, and the joy found in the ritual of making.
You can see the collection of abstract screenprints on my website, nellsmith.co.uk, and the 100 Day collages over on instagram.
I’m offering a 10% discount code for use site wide through the merry month of May to celebrate the launch of my new work. Add products to your basket and enter the code Beltane10 at the checkout.
The Craft and Design Centre has now reopened, and we are very happy to welcome people back Monday to Saturday, 10-5:30. I am usually in Studio 9 on Wednesdays, so pop in then if you would like to have a chat.
Hope to see you soon, and a happy May to you all!
