This is the paper I use for my print and drawing work.
The process of making stands for the hammers. The mk1 foam stand was a failure so then made a solid one using the band saw. This was then cast in a two part key mould and concrete stands were cast from the mould. I did quite a hard mix and made sure the mould was soaked through. Usually one would have to make 4 separate moulds however with care I managed to use just one.

More images from Cuthbert country. The face you can see in the cave I thought looked like a turtle. there was also a dragon head and after having been in the cave for a few hours I genuinely began to see them as friendly faces. Also pictures are people waiting to cross to Lindisfarne - I was able to cross the ankle deep water on my bike (pictured) no problem.
some more pictures of time spent in the cave that sum up the mood very well.
I thought it would be interesting to follow google maps to get to the cave. there is something trivial about google maps that undermines the seriousness of a journey to a cave.
digging something up out of the ground gives it a stamp of authenticity
The nature of the authentic object is examined by many of this year’s artists. Liv Preston, Cuthbert Nobel, Benjamin Dawton and Georgia Dennison are working together to make P_T, an experimental site which functions both as a place for making and as a context for discussions.
work in progress. This will become a tapestry.
