The Blue Whale

I am printing the Blue Whale at the moment and have made three prints that are currently hanging in the hall. Each one takes a full day to complete and I expect to have finished five by the end of the residency. The Whale will be created from 25 Elm planks from a tree brought from Alnwick, Northumberland, ten years ago. This is the biggest woodcut print I have produced and the Elm is virtually extinct in Northumberland.

Every thing on the floor in the Great Hall will be dismantled this weekend and reassembled in a different configuration for the final week.
