Julian has now become Jonah

After a long week in the Great Hall of the Discovery Museum, a gaint ex-dining hall that feels like being inside a whales ribs. Progress on the 25 elm planks has been slow but regular. they are now properly measured, aligned and drawn on, they have been marked out in blue to preserve them and to stop them drying out and twisting. Now comes the smoothing out of the bandsaw marks along the exterior of the whale.

After two days with a cabinet scraper he has completed two planks starting from the head. Starting this Friday the children who have been participating by doing their own prints of a series of woodcut fish are now able to participate in a mud resit print on a textile.
