1. An Aldgate walk to the studio. This will be based on your journey into printmaking each week.A routine walk to the studio, for many an uneventful suburban or city walk.

 

2. It is about awareness.The importance of being receptive and aware of our daily surroundings.

 

3. It is about the range of possibilities. There are many categories to see, to consider; history, medicine, literature, religion, work, art, fashion, politics, typography.

 

4. Generosity. It is about the abundance of things that you can see, collect, observe and record.

 

5. Tune in. Sometimes we tune in to particular aspects of a location as we move through it, what are you looking for? What did you find?

 

6. Archive. The streets, people and buildings are a great archive to study, to interpret and translate.

 

7. Touchstone. Your walk, your journey to and through Aldgate will be your visual touchstone.

 

8. Influence. Allow the crowded images of your walk to influence the development of your visual work in printmaking. Acknowledge the oblique and subtle influence of location in your work.

 

9. Start by dedicating a single drawing book to this project and use it regularly to record your walks and commute to the studio.

 

10. Continue by developing this work into each printmaking process that you undertake in the studio.
