January is always a grey and dreary month but it’s also a good time to think about the year ahead. Our first workshop is for the London Business School Student Association on Saturday. Jonny has taken some new portraits of Ross at work for a feature on textileartist.org that will come out towards the end of february. Ross is delivering Handmade Experimental Brushes and Botanical Inks at Ditchling Museum of Art + Craft on the 4th March. This is part of a series of workshops to coincide with Shōji Hamada: A Japanese Potter in Ditchling, which includes Keith Brymer-Jones: Boy in a China Shop: Life, Clay and Everything and Naoko Abe: ‘Cherry’ Ingram, The Englishman Who Saved Japan’s Blossoms. We are also hoping to deliver another series of workshops with The Duke of Cambridge and the Florence Trust with other exciting developments coming later in the year.
