Caxton Youth Organisation at the South West Fest, London

Last Saturday, Caxton Youth Organisation, with whom I run weekly Art Workshops, took part in the South West Fest, a carnival that takes place annually in Westminster. We designed and made costumes based on the theme of “Space” which was great fun. The sun shone and we marched through the streets with all the other groups taking part and finished with a picnic in beautiful Eccleston Square. Caxton is a brilliant organisation that works with young people with learning disabilities.P1050562

New music

rebel 1I have recently been writing and recording music with my friend Craig Hood and daughter, Jessie Frost. We are calling ourselves The Shapists – after the ficticious Art movement in the classic Tony Hancock film “The Rebel” from 1961, a satire on the pretensions of the Art world. We have almost finished 4 songs so far. You can hear one as part of an interview I did with Revenge of the 80’s radio on Friday 5th July. This will be available as a podcast after this date.
