The Exeter Book Project

The 10 th century Exeter Book is the oldest collection of Anglo Saxon poetry.  Dr Emma Cayley led workshops about this book and the app that will be soon made.  Alongside myself and Sara Hurley (riddler and storyteller) http://sarahurley.org
We worked with Isca college and Sidwells School creating calligrafitti tags inspired by Niels 'Shoe' Meulman and decorated manuscripts with some great thought out riddles from the students.  There is an exhibition currently on   'From Medieval Manuscripts to 'Calligraffiti'  at Exeter Cathedral.

Here are the Rock coats and T shirts I made for the  English Riviera Global Geopark www.englishrivierageopark.org.uk. The coats went off to Japan to teach about Jurassic coast of Torbay and these photos are from when they were worn while Nowhere Island arrived in Torbay.  Sported by Musician Hugh Nankinvell & Tony LIdington http://promprom.wordpress.com/  Great making as I got to learn about the main rocks of the Torbay coastline. Grey Devonian limestones, red Permian sandstones and breccias.  You can't really see them in these photos but I also got to draw and embroider some Devonshire fossil pictures, fossils of tilobites, goniatites, crinoids and orthocones on to the coats pockets which was all rather fun. Below are some of my sketches.
