Latest news.....

West End Day Trip is a visual art and social enterprise project based in the West End of Plymouth, UK and is curated by Gareth Ballyn. I taught a number of workshops to a group of NEET students which included working with archive imagery and line drawings based on the West End of Plymouth. I also worked with the students designs to make merchandise, which are now for sale at Plymouth Arts Centre and Plymouth City Museum and Art Gallery.

Here below is a publication I recently finished for Plymouth College of Art in Oct 2013 which shows a personal account from the students, tutors, artists and partners on how they thought the project went. Here below are some pages from the book.
