Thanks & Goodbye

Its been one short week since everyone left the farm and the place seems so quiet. As we get ready for the beginning of our residency next month we remember all the great times that were had chatting around the dinner table, goofing off in the darkroom, late-nite movies and trips. We’re so lucky to […]

A new crop of photos…

The past week has been a fruitful one where painting projects were completed on hand built canvases, and another photo project produced more prints in the darkroom. Our “one minute sculpture” project tested speed, creativity and sometimes balance, yielding some mysterious and imaginative photographs. On Thursday some people went to the under 18’s disco at […]

Our first week in pictures…

Our first week on the farm was an eventful one. From the first few days getting to know each-other playing games, to testing our engineering skills, learning the darkroom and camera and starting our first paintings there was always something going on. Tea cakes were a hit again. Lola has been entertaining the crowd and […]

Goodbye
