Last week I had the utter pleasure of running a workshop at The Whitworth as a part of their Thursday Lates program, curated by CONA, an artists collective based in Mumbai. I was there equipped with my badge machines and a lot of pencils and collage materials – along with Cherry Styles from Synchronise Witches, who was there running a zine making workshop, and artist-in-residence Himanshu Shady. I bought a couple of zines from Himanshu and they’re some of the most lovely things I’ve ever read – do go look at his work on Instagram or Tumblr.

Ever since I moved to Manchester and first visited, I’ve loved The Whitworth. It’s a such beautiful building and space, with huge windows overlooking the park. We were in the New Arrivals gallery, and I’m not sure I could come up with a nicer place to run a workshop. I loved getting to see so many people of all ages brave the Manchester rain and get so excited about making things – it’s pretty much the dream.

Here’s just a few of the badges people made, as always I wish I’d thought to take more photos of the finished things, I saw so many great ones on the night, including some amazing drawings. If you were there and made something, please send me photos!

If you’re interested in me running a workshop for you please get in touch – I’d love to work with more community + activist groups especially.


A trip to Bristol was lovely. Above is the view we had from our hotel room, which had some great tiki style furniture. I’d never been before, but I’ll definitely be returning, a lot.

Boston Tea Party and Noa.

Breakfast beside the beautiful Lido. It was so good that we returned a couple of days later (Turkish pouched eggs, real mint tea, fruit loaf toast with maple butter).

Playing around in At-Bristol before our planetarium viewing.

The zoo. I wish Brighton had a zoo.

Bristol Museum and Art Gallery.

The botanical gardens were peaceful, and beautiful.

I also wish Brighton had a dedicated cider shop.
