Work in progress for a new piece for an exhibition at Snape Maltings in September, as part of Aldeburgh Music’s 50th anniversary celebrations. The words are from a song by Benjamin Britten which I have known since school choir days. Have no idea how it will work yet...
The exhibition, entitled In Concert, is one of two lettering shows taking place this year.This is will be one of the Lettering Arts Trust’s most ambitious collective exhibitions of new work. The entire project will involve over 60 of the foremost lettering artists.
The Witherslack Artists and Makers Group exhibition dates this year are Saturday 16th September till Sunday 15th October 2017.
Commissioned by Friends of Ullswater, I am carving verses into rocks in Hallin Wood, on the newly established Ullswater Way. The words were written by Kathleen Raine whose poetry was inspired by her many visits to Martindale.
Three extracts were selected from two of her poems: Night in Martindale and On Leaving Ullswater. The native rocks are situated a few meters apart along a contour above the footpath, where incidentally evidence of charcoal-burning has been found - look out for a low-level sign directing walkers up the hill.
