Another little something to whet your whistle ahead of next month's Carshalton Artists Open Studios today in the form of the studio of printmaker Simon Burder.

Simon runs the Oaks Editions Lithography Studio from his space at Oaks Park - here he creates his own work as well as running regular workshops, short courses and offering artists open access and edition printing facilities.

Simon's work has been selected for numerous prestigious exhibitions including the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition - so it's likely you've seen his prints somewhere before. He'll be opening his studio alongside his wife Kate Wilson, whose paintings have really caught my eye.

Having never tried this method of printing before myself, attending one of Simon's courses has been on my list for years - maybe this will finally spur me on to do something about it!

During the two weekends of Carshalton Artists Open House, Simon will be running a collective litho stone drawing which all visitors will be invited to contribute to before it is printed - this sounds like a brilliant opportunity to have a go!
