Over the winter Annwyn has concentrated on developing her printing skills and along with her research into the 17th textile trade with India has led to a body of new book formats incorporating chintz designs.
Joan has at last returned to work after a six month enforced break and says that ithas been surprisingly difficult to get back to producing or even starting anew series of books, but her new studio is inspiring her.She is developing a new body of work which began when someone gave her a chemist's record of drugs and patients from 1927.
Elizabeth has been working towards the new Green Door exhibition "Inside Outside" and has created a series of boxes that fit inside each other, rather like Russian Dolls. Hiding inside the smallest box will be a tiny book for recording secrets. The boxes are covered with a two plate lino-cut print.
