A Boiler Suit And A Newspaper Wall

Today The Bagpuss Window opened for business. Fellow artist Melanie Ezra and I have taken on an old shop premises as a pop-up studio and public access artspace. We did come clearing and cleaning at the end of last week and today we started working on art. Several artists wandered in to chat about the possibility of coming in and working with us over the month and one stayed a while and made a plastic door curtain for us from old carrier bags and some police crime scene tape found in the street. More artists will be joining us from time to time to work on art and put it into the ever-changing Bagpuss Window.


Today I donned my boiler suit and sturdy shoes and papered a large expanse of wall with newspaper. This is the base for a large intuitive drawing I’ll be doing through our stay. I also pasted the 2 ‘Bagpuss Window’ signs I made last week to the front of the shop. We have 3 groovy little changing cubicles at the back of the shop so we’re waiting for an artist to come up with a way of using them. Husb is hoping to get a webcam fixed up in the next couple of days so we can do a live stream of artists at work. A bit like Big Brother on the telly 😀

Here’s something about this week at The Bagpuss Window.

    Good luck to you. I’ll look forward to posts about your progress. Does Bagpuss have a particular meaning?

      Thank you 🙂 Bagpuss was a beloved character in a children’s television series who lived in a shop window full of curiosities that changed every day.
