I am back in London.
I spent ten weeks in the USA, travelled 13 states, visited 17 cities, and have countless blogposts to catch up with…
I’ve met so many inspirational people, workshops, studios - it’s astounding.
Watch this space.
(I’ve jet-lag to deal with now)
Chicago was pretty amazing. I visited the Columbia Center for Book and Paper Arts (blogpost to come). During the two days we spent there, I don’t think it stopped raining once…
We stayed in a neighbourhood called Wicker Park, which was really great - lots going on, places to eat and drink, cool hipster-y shops and the like.
The city’s almost a little overwhelming (in terms of scale) - I think when I visit again, I definitely have to spend longer than two days.

I met with Gerri Newfry for a coffee, which was great. It’s been great to meet with various “internet people” along the trip, if only to put a name to a face!
So, Chicago - not to be rushed, I would conclude. There’s a lot to see and do. Visit in the summer…
