This blog documents my developing work as part of an RSA residency for Scotland award 2011. For this I have been researching Sphagnum skyense moss, only found on Skye and traveling to Edinburgh printmakers to learn screenprinting. I intend to make a series of screenprints which relate to sphagnum.

In Edinburgh again...
Edinburgh print workshop
Visiting again to try and print a series of things, peat stories, photographic separations of Sphagnum and some text, thinking about the layering of colours something I have avoided with using peat.
Being in Edinburgh I notice moss where it grows and makes use of places other plants can't manage as in this wall head beside the Water of Leith.
