I have just been commissioned by Blackburn Museum and Art Gallery as part of the open shop project, to be resident in a disused shop for a month to engage the towns residents in their vast print and ephemera archive. I will be making mapping portraits of the locals who exchange their stories over free cups of tea.
I am journeying to London a lot of late, to immerse myself in the delicious receipt books housed at the Wellcome Trust. I'm brimful of 17th century recipes and remedies eager to try out on at home. An exciting new publication is in the pipeline to be distributed at the annual Wellcome Picnic held this summer in Camden. It's all rather appetite whetting .
