Despite adverse weather warnings it was a beautiful clear cold day and the journey down to Aspex Gallery in Portsmouth, was as ever stunning, even from the motorway! I met up with students from St Vincent College, Lauren Scott-Smith, my final year illustration student buddy,  as well as Sam, a pgce student and and Jon Leftley, lecturer, both at St Vincents.

The aim of the visit was not only to let the students see a professional gallery space where they will be exhibiting their work in March, but also to meet and talk to Clive Claswell,  the gallery's programme manager.  Currently they are showing 'Human Made Things' a group show featuring a selection of works from Suzanne Moxhay, Sarah Dobai and Andy Holden, all of which explore making as a means of questioning, understanding and communicating.
