Rio Wrenn

Lovely Work by Rio Wrenn - Berry mix dyes, rust and copper printed garments.

Tuesday, 8 January 2013 really is the final year!

Im currently rust printing for my final project and the outcome is going to be some form of a garment, probably quite sculptural. If im honest im feeling a little scared. Its my final year and im wondering where my work will take me. I kinda of wish i had chosen a different route for my project but i have to bite the bullet and do my best to make it as amazing as i possibly can. The uncertainty of where a project may take you is normally exciting but this year that excitement has turned to worry. Is anyone going to notice my work? Are people going to appreciate it or like it?  Have I chosen the right path? And what will i do once this year has finished? I hope that i am not coming across all doom and gloom but I am sure many third years feel the same. The last few years have consisted of being in a creative bubble, feeling secure and able to experiment and test our creative abilities. The journey has been amazing and not only have I learnt many skills, i have found myself, learnt about myself and met some amazing creative people along the way.
So whats next...keep going!!! ;o) xxx

Well since my last post a lot has happened so my blog has taken a bit of a hit! But things have settled and this blog will not get neglected.
So, whats been going down? Romania for a month in August....amazing! Spent my time there mask making, icon painting and jewellery making. There was five of us being looked after by amazing people! We were made so welcome and was given the full Romanian experience with bbqs, day trips, and a mountain hike. Romania was a creative inspiration in many ways and has influenced my Final Project at university. It was also really hot and was able to actually wear my summer clothes.
I've attached some of images of what i made in Romania.
Then it was a house move and now its dissertation and final project time!!!
My dissertation is about what makes vintage popular and my project is about destruction, deterioration and the disregarded! I shall elaborate more a bit later...
Hope you all enjoy your sunday lunches, sleeps on the sofa or whatever your sundays may be about!

Cant help but PANIC with a pee RANT!

So much to do so little time to do it sure we all feel that pressure at times. I cant complain as I have some good stuff happening at the moment but the PANIC is setting in because there is so much to do. Im off to Romania in two weeks time for a really excited as I will be on a work placement learning tradition skills including mask making and icon painting...not that i can paint. Before this I have a couple of events one being at a festival. Really looking forward to the festival, there is a good crowd and will hopefully get to check out some bands. The one thing with festivals are the toilets....Im totally happy to camp in the wilderness with no toilet but using the toilets at these places cant be nasty! Oh and needing a wee in the middle of the night when you are wrapped up warm in your tent is just not on! Me fella and I have just returned from camping and every night without fail I had to get up for a pee!!  I found this piece of art a Pee Shower (not real pee obviously)...looks like its at a festival so who knows, if I come across one I will be sure to post it on here. Well i must get on with my list of stuff to do!! Will probably catch up after Romania!! See you soon xx

Rainbow Net

Thank you to those who made suggestions on getting organised. I have started lists and this week has been a really productive week. I have also managed to get loads sorted around the house...a good spring clean is good for the soul. The shed is full of stuff to take to a car boot and have a box full to ebay!!

Now for a bit of artist sharing..for those who know Stella Adams-Schofield she is very good at sharing lots of artists work on Facebook, practically, if not everyday, there is something new to feast your creative eyes on. Today she has posted artist Toshiko Horiuchi-MacAdam's 'Rainbow Net' and I think its awesome. 

For more information and images check out this link:

Enjoy!! xx

Getting Organised

It is my mission this summer (if we can call it that) is to get organised. I always think that Im well organised but I could be better. With my stall and the pressure of university next year is going to be busier than the last. A 5000 word dissertation isn't to bad but its certainly a lot of writing....which is never my speciality. So any tips would be welcome...i know the obvious diaries, wall planner (im def investing in one of these) but if there is something that someone knows please do share. Previously I listed a few and tried some apps but I would be interested in any others. Well I will leave it there and carry on with a report that im writing.
Thanks for reading and get those ideas listed...for those who cant leave comments please feel free to list them on my facebook. Cheers xxx
